Companies and industries are growing increasingly dependent on technology as digital transformation becomes omnipresent in today’s business environment. Consequently, cybersecurity is now relevant for every system, device, and byte of data that organizations rely on to operate.
The COVID-19 pandemic has further augmented the need for skilled cybersecurity professionals to address the crisis organizations are facing as a result of digitalization and rising cybercrime. But according to a report by the Centre for Strategic & International Studies, 82% of employers are facing a shortage of cybersecurity talent
To address the cybersecurity skills gap, EC- Council has developed the Certified Cybersecurity Technician (CCT) certification. The CCT goes beyond teaching fundamental cybersecurity concepts by validating course participants’ IT and cybersecurity skills through extensive hands-on practice and assessment.
