As we have discussed in the past, the hottest realm of IT training in the past year or so has been IT security and information assurance (IA Training). Among the popularity leaders in this category are the following certifications: CISSP, CEH. CHFI, ECSA / LPT and the Advanced Penetration Tester (APT). In the forefront of certification agencies on this list is the EC-Council. This organization has grown by leaps and bounds and is seen as the leader in information security courseware and certs.
The EC-Council has just announced the ATC (EC-Council Accredited Training Center) awards for 2010. The world’s #1 company for EC-Council hacking and forensics training is Advanced Security by Academy of Computer Education. Instructor of the Year goes to Advanced Security’s Master Trainer Joe McCray. Joe has had a big year for other reasons, namely he has become one of the foremost pentesting experts in the country and has been a guest speaker at some major conferences and events throughout 2010.
