Save your spot:

Cybercriminals persistently devise new methods to compromise network security and access sensitive information. With the surge in the quality and quantity of cybercrimes, chief information security officers (CISOs) and security stakeholders must balance security requirements and operational functionality.

Cybersecurity operates not as a democracy or dictatorship but as a nuanced equilibrium, supporting business while maintaining security through an infinite mindset. In an era marked by the widespread adoption of digital technologies across industries, the focus on cybersecurity should be a long-term strategy, cultivating a culture of vigilance and adaptability.

An infinite mindset perceives cybersecurity as a continual, evolving process, championing adaptability, ongoing learning, and agility to preempt ever-changing threats. This webinar explores how finite and infinite mindsets shape organizational security strategies amid a dynamic threat landscape.

It examines their impact on cyber resilience and emphasizes the necessity of proactive measures, innovation, and a commitment to staying ahead of emerging risks.

EC COuncil Hall of Fame

Starting 2021 every year, EC-Council honors a select group of our CEH certified members by inducting a group into the CEH Hall of Fame. It is our chance to honor the best and brightest among our global community. This is a “by invitation-only” recognition program.

This coveted podium is not for the mediocre. Only current EC-Council members who scored at least 90% on the CEH exam are invited to apply for the Hall of Fame.

EC-Council has a growing alumni of certification holders who have used their education excellence and experience to not only become successful, but to positively contribute to society. We believe that positive role models are extremely important in today’s world and that our best and brightest should be held up for others to emulate.

Candidates are nominated annually and presented to the CEH Hall of Fame selection committee. The committee carefully reviews the applications based on their accomplishments, contribution to society, their career transformation story, and their role in the organization where they are employed and presents the finalists to the CEH Advisory Board for their final selection.

The 2021 inductees into the CEH Hall of Fame will be featured on the CEH Hall of Fame Leader board.

My Recent Accomplishments:
PhD in Cybersecurity, authored 16 books, 4 of them won Best of all time awards Awarded by CISO MAG, CIO Online, Security Me Magazine and multiple international media companies. Awarded by NATO United Nations for my contributions. EC-Council CEI award.

What would not have been possible without CEH?
CEH gave me the foundation I need. It was the first milestone that led me to get a Doctorate in Cybersecurity after 2 master’s degrees! Being a CEI helped me to learn also from students, which made me better.

How did CEH contribute to your career?
CEH was my first security certificate. It made me aware of the future and opened my eyes, which led me to go all the way to my doctorate.

During the pandemic, did your role become more challenging? If so, how?
CEH teaches the main foundations of the current cybersecurity landscape. It demonstrates how hackers work, think, and attack, which helps me think like them and strengthen my defense capabilities.

EC-Council Announces Hall of Fame for Ethical Hackers

After receiving thousands of applications, EC-Council, the world’s leading global ethical hacking certification body, has announced the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Hall of Fame of 2021, listed the 100 awardees across the globe.

EC-Council, the world’s leading ethical hacking certification body, has announced the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Hall of Fame of 2021, listed the top 100 awardees across the globe. The Hall of Fame celebrates some of the most accomplished Certified Ethical Hackers, helping organizations with cybersecurity teams access the best talent worldwide and benchmark their teams’ capability against the best in the industry.

The top 100 members of the CEH Hall of Fame of 2021 have been selected based on their professional achievements and community contributions. All EC-Council members holding a CEH certification with at least a 90% score were invited to apply. However, making it to the Hall of Fame required more than just passing the CEH exam. A selection committee carefully reviewed applications based on their accomplishments with a critical focus on their contribution to society, career transformation story, and role in the organization where they are employed.

“We believe that positive role models are extremely important in today’s world and that our best and brightest CEH certification holders should be held up for others to emulate,” said Jay Bavisi, CEO of EC-Council Group. “This program is all about highlighting the fact that experience and contribution to the industry are just as important as education excellence.”

The 17-year-old Certified Ethical Hacker program has enthralled the cybersecurity community worldwide, gaining the respect and acceptance of various cyber-defense forces, and is recognized by the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Army, U.S. Navy, USAF, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), British National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), and many other elite defense bodies. About half of Fortune 500 enterprises have CEHs as part of their cybersecurity teams. Now in its 11th version, the CEH is still one of the most in-demand IT certifications in the world for 2021.

“I used the CEH knowledge to help uncover vulnerabilities in our platform. I also used the same knowledge to help review architecture designs for flaws prior to implementation. My recent accomplishments include building a secure IoT device management as a service platform in the cloud,” said Brad Bitterman, Cybersecurity Lead at Lenovo, USA.

“As a Certified Ethical Hacker, I am comfortable testing and understanding attacks. And with great power comes great responsibility. It is our moral duty to continue learning, testing, trying hard, understanding, to help our customers, friends and families. I worked with CEH methodology and skills before trying to obtain the certification. I self-studied CND and then CEH. EC-Council trainings have been recognized during my professional interviews,” said Natacha Bakir, the CEH Hall of Fame Awardee who works for HP, France.

Another awardee, Nikos Vrakas, Cloud Solution Specialist at IBM, Greece, said that “During the pandemic, I used my skills to highlight the importance of implementing secure remote access solutions to various companies. The amount of knowledge transferred through CEH is intriguing on its own. The hands-on engagements and the fact that you are exploiting real vulnerabilities arises your interest to try more, harder, and with more passion and dedication!”

Each awardee will receive a certificate of honor and a benefits package to attempt the Certified Penetration Tester Professional (CPENT) exam. To view the CEH Hall of Fame 2021 Awardees, visit
