United States students may now get academic credit for EC-Council certifications, such as the well known CEH(Certified Ethical Hacker), when enrolling in the Master of Security Science program at EC-Council University.
With all the recent Cyber security breaches, in both civilian and government organizations, there is a mass scramble by government agencies and businesses to find trained cyber security professionals to secure the nations infrastructure from both cyber criminals and nation states that wish nations harm.
In an effort to improve institutional integrity, curriculum design, and promote student success, ECCU has recently undergone a rigorous evaluation process from a national accrediting association.The goal of accreditation is to ensure that the academic process provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality. There are several reasons accreditation is important other than assurance of quality and adherence to specific academic standards.
To assist with this massive shortage, EC-Council University (ECCU), a nationally accredited institution, is pleased to provide both intense hands on, real world training in the areas of penetration testing and computer forensic investigation; as well as extensive leadership courses, based on best practices of the major world corporations CISOs. Students may also receive prior learning work related credit for already achieved cyber security certifications, such as EC-Councils CEH or CHFI.
