Cybersecurity for a Digital Planet, Since 2001

Our Story

We help protect your cyber borders so that you can sleep safe at night.

With the overall spending on cybersecurity to cross $1 trillion by 2025, it’s evident that the world needs better and smarter solutions to counter cyberattacks, and the demand for professionals is increasing as a result.

Over the last two decades, EC-Council’s cybersecurity programs and services have created new standards and industry benchmarks. The devastating 9/11 attacks in 2001 were a turning point for founder Jay Bavisi, who, after watching the attacks unfold, was inspired to begin his mission to protect the cyberworld by equipping the information security community with the tools and resources they needed to thwart cyberattacks. Thus, EC-Council was born.

Today, we operate across 145 countries to build and refine the cybersecurity profession globally. We help individuals, organizations, educators, and governments address global workforce problems through the development and delivery of world-class cybersecurity education programs and globally recognized certifications and provide cybersecurity services to some of the largest businesses globally.
