Write For Us

We’re always on the lookout for industry thought leaders who’d like to offer their perspectives on cybersecurity and risk management.

Writing for EC-Council is highly rewarding. As a highly respected cert body, we have thousands of IT professionals who look to us for cybersecurity knowledge, risk management, and the latest hacking and security methods.

We want each article to be its very best, for this reason, every article submitted passes through our Global Content Committee for approval and you will get a chance to work closely with an editor for approvals.

What We’re Looking For

Please submit either a rough draft, a partial draft, or a short pitch (summarizing your topic and why it matters to our readers) paired with an outline. The more complete your submission is, the better feedback we can give you. Keep in mind that we only accept original content—we do not publish anything that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).

Please don’t send us press releases or sales pitches. They will not be entertained.

Before you submit, look at our style guide and recent articles for insight into structuring and formatting your piece, and make sure your submission:

  • Is original, We do not publish content that has been published elsewhere (including your personal blog)
  • Is written for an audience of current and aspiring cybersecurity experts from across the globe
  • Is supported with convincing arguments, not just opinions. Fact-check, and cite sources where appropriate.
  • Follows our style guide – take a look at our current articles to get an idea of what structure and formatting.

How to Submit

Fill in the form below with your name, email address, topic, and a brief about the topic (pitch and outline) and we will get in touch with you.

Now What?

Your submission will be reviewed by our Global Content Committee to determine if it’s a potential fit.

We will then get in touch with you, generally within the week, with notes, suggestions, and comments for a revised complete version of your article. (We rarely accept an article the first time around, but we’ll tell you if we’re interested.)

Once your article is accepted, it will be scheduled for publication with one final check. (We cannot assure a specific publication date but, can assure that it will go live once accepted)
