An Orientation Session by the EC Council
In collaboration with the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council), the IT Department's Research and Consultancy Committee organised an orientation session for our staff and students on the certification and training programmes offered by the EC-Council. EC-Council is an American organisation that provides cybersecurity certification and training programmes. It is well-known for the range of world-class cybersecurity certification programmes, including Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (CHFI) and EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA). It is worth mentioning that recently our department (IT Department) took the initiative to sign an academic partnership with EC-Council to support our students to pursue their career in the cybersecurity field.
The orientation session was held on Thursday, 25 March under the title "Webinar on Leadership Career in Cybersecurity". It was organised to learn more about EC-Council's programmes and services and uncover the benefits of the academic partnership to students and staff. The session was delivered by Mr Talha Jawad, regional academia manager at EC-Council. It covered the following points:
- Introduction to various certification career tracks and job roles available
- Demonstration of the virtual lab platform
After an informative and well-structured presentation, the guest speaker allotted some time for the Q&A session. About 54 staff members and students attended the webinar, which lasted for one hour, it concluded at 4 PM. The full video recording is available online via the following link: https://cutt.ly/ax4Tlrq
