Deloitte Romania and EC-Council Partner to Bring Cybersecurity Education to the Region

Deloitte Romania has now partnered with EC-Council in their efforts to create cybersecurity professionals from various organisations and sectors through the coveted, ANSI 17024 and GCHQ accredited.

“Deloitte Romania believes that constant change is the new norm for today’s businesses and in this changing environment, one has to be ready to act at a moment’s notice. That is why, in an effort to strengthen the cybersecurity workforce in Romania and Central Europe through accredited programmes like the CEH, we eagerly welcome this partnership with EC-Council,” said George Daniliuc, Manager for Deloitte Cyber Academy, Romania.

A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of a target system(s). The C|EH credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.

“Cybersecurity is a major strategic risk for any individuals. We live in a rapidly advancing world, where progress in technology often outpaces the speed at which we come to terms with it. In such a chaos, quality skill-based certifications can offer stability. We are optimistic that this partnership with Deloitte Romania will help future and current cybersecurity professionals fight prevailing cyber threats that they face on a daily basis,” said Jay Bavisi, President of the EC-Council Group.

Added Andrei Ionescu, Risk Advisory Partner Deloitte Romania: “Deloitte has been focusing on cyber security for over 20 years through constant innovation and through partnerships with relevant organizations and has a proven track record in this area confirmed both by clients and global research companies such as Gartner, Forrester or IDC. Deloitte Cyber Academy appeared as we became more and more aware of the fact that education lies at the core of any organization’s culture and is a condition for growth, therefore we are investing continuously and allocate solid resources in this direction”.

The goal of this course is to help professionals master an ethical hacking methodology that can be used in a penetration testing or ethical hacking situation. With this credential, professionals will be able to walk out the door with ethical hacking skills that are in high demand, as well as the internationally recognised Certified Ethical Hacker certification.
