CICRA Institute of Education will commence Certified Ethical Hacker training for the next batch on September 28 while its first group of Certified Ethical Hackers completed their training in Colombo recently.
The five day training programme was part of CICRA's objective to arm Sri Lankan corporates against the raising wave of cybercrimes worldwide. Trained by Krishna Rajagopal, an international trainer accredited by US based International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (E-CCouncil), these ethical hackers will receive C|EH qualification from the E-C Council after completing an extensive examination.
CICRA has been accredited to train cyber soldiers to fight against newest forms of cyber terrorism that could cripple national security interests and corporate network structure following a partnership with E-C Council, which in turn has been endorsed by US Department of Defense and the National Security Agency (NSA).
Under this partnership, CICRA will retain EC-Council accredited international trainers to coach and certify individuals in the specific network security discipline including security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure in Sri Lanka.
For the first time in Sri Lanka, CICRA is running EC-Council certified combo training programmes in Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI), Licensed Penetrating Tester (LPT) and Advanced Security Training in Advanced Penetration Testing (APT), Digital Mobile Forensics Deep Dive, Advanced Application Security (AAS), Advanced Network Defense and Cryptography Deep Dive.
A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, CICRA Director Boshan Dayaratne said.
Computer investigation techniques are being used by police, government and corporate entities globally and many of them turn to EC-Council for the Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI) Training and Certification Programme.
CICRA is also offering training in advanced security testing through the EC-Council's Centre for Advanced Security Training (CAST) that has been created to address the need for highly technical and advanced security training for information security professionals. CAST programmes stand out from others through their extreme hands-on approach. These highly technical lab intensive advanced security training courses will allow a participant to combat real life scenarios.
E-C Council is a member-based organization that certifies individuals in cyber security and e-commerce and is the owner and developer of 16 globally recognized security certificates. Its certificate programmes are offered in over 84 countries around the world.
EC-Council has trained over 90,000 individuals and certified more than 40,000 members worldwide. These certifications are recognized worldwide and have received endorsements from various government agencies including the U.S. Federal Government via the Montgomery GI Bill, Department of Defense via DoD 8570.01M, National Security Agency (NSA) and the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS).
