Who We Are
EC-Council Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by EC-Council to raise awareness of cyber safety issues for the global community while unifying global cyber defense.
EC-Council Foundation’s mission is to create a safer cyber world, by using our programs and events to advocate safer online activities.
Cyber security statistics show that the majority of security breaches are: low in difficulty, take a long time to discover, are discovered by outside parties, and are perpetrated by outsiders.
Through our programs we aim to stop malicious hacking at its core cause, while creating an opportunity for ethical hacking to be accepted and practiced without any discrimination, across all geographical boundaries for the purpose of understanding what it takes to protect and secure critical information and assets.
