Whitecliffe College are now proud partners with EC-Council. The joint venture aims to equip the next generation of talent to take the lead in preventing cyberthreats by providing aspiring cybersecurity professionals with the latest tools, techniques, and skills to prevent businesses from falling prey to advanced cyberattacks.
According to Norton’s 2022 Cyber Safety Insights Report, 33% of New Zealanders experienced cybercrime in 2021, and cyberattacks on Waikato public hospitals, financial institutions, and the national postal service have underscored the urgent need to advance and strengthen the country’s cybersecurity measures. This union is designed to produce technically proficient cybersecurity professionals who are analytical and out-of-the-box thinkers, clear and concise communicators, and astute problem solvers.
Growing data breaches and cyberattacks have forced businesses and institutions to double down on their cybersecurity investments. Whitecliffe’s partnership with EC-Council is an important step in addressing the cybersecurity skills shortage and training the next generation of security leaders. The well-structured curriculum, designed by the world’s top security experts, will create cybersecurity professionals with an analytical and technical mindset who are prepared to excel and thrive.
Today’s industry professionals can have a profound impact by encouraging upcoming generations to join the cybersecurity workforce and be the change needed in the world, and this partnership is just the beginning.
