IBM ISS engineers in C|EH training.

The Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) program provides knowledge of different hacking tools and methodologies to engineers of IBM Internet Security Systems (ISS), who deploy this knowledge to test and improve the capability of products that they are offering to its global customers. This ensures that customers of IBM ISS will be getting the latest and best protection from security threats.

Mumbai, October 26, 2009 – A group of over 90 engineers from IBM ISS (India) recently completed the Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) program, and successfully joins the global community of EC-Council certified information security members that currently stands at over 25,000 across 60 countries. 40 more are set to join the ranks towards the end of this month.

In addition to being touted as one of the world’s most comprehensive ethical hacking program – featuring the latest hacking tools and methodologies, the C|EH curriculum is also certified to meet the stringent CNSS 4011-4016 standards, awarded by the US National Security Agency (NSA) and Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS).

The intent of IBM ISS (India) to equip its engineers with knowledge of the latest tools and methodologies employed by hackers, which is critical for them to maintain a competitive edge over other service providers, led to the demand for C|EH training. The security skill levels of the IBM ISS professionals are anticipated to develop further, delivering performances and security products that would exceed all expectations in their market base.

“It’s very important for our personnel to grasp the thought process of cyber criminals and in this respect; the C|EH program is very extensive in terms of the tools & techniques being covered. It is the gateway to security related knowledge in the information security domain,” said Sanjeev Navale, Project Manager for IBM India.

“As IBM practices the ‘Kaizen’ value of continual skill development & improvement, we wish to have long term association with EC-Council so that we can keep updated with the latest vulnerability in current technologies”, Navale added.

Sean Lim, Vice President of EC-Council said, “Keeping our curricula and content up to date is EC-Council’s edge. We constantly update our content, making sure it provides the latest knowledge and skills for anyone embarking on our programs. Having trained and certified this large group from IBM ISS (India) further fortifies that our certification programs are of the highest quality.”

Plans for IBM ISS (India) to put its team of engineers through another highly sought after program – the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (E|CSA), which exposes its learners to various outcome analysis methods of testing tools, are already underway and the next training will be scheduled for the last quarter of 2009.
