the tools and training to develop the skills needed to think like a
hacker so they can scan, test, hack and secure their own systems. We’re
excited to add Skillsoft as an endorsed partner to our network of global
“The complex and evolving world of security threats make this an area
that requires constant education and skills development. With enterprise
and consumer users continuing to invest more in mobility, social media
and the cloud, their data is at more risk than ever before,” said Priti
Shah, Skillsoft director of product management. “We are thrilled to
partner with the EC-Council to offer CEH training which assists
information security professionals to better protect themselves and
their organizations from cyber attacks. We also look forward to
developing new content to map to EC-Council’s evolving qualifications
for information security certification.”
