30 Aug 16

DDLS, an Australian learning solutions company has won the EC-Council Circle of Excellence Global Award.

The awards are presented annually to honour EC-Council’s Accredited Training Centres that have made distinguished contributions to the success of EC-Council certification programs.

Gary Duffield, strategic alliances director for DDLS, says they’re honoured to receive such an award.

“It highlights both the fantastic job DDLS is doing in bringing world class security training to the Australian market and the demand in the market for security professionals. DDLS and EC-Council together are helping to provide the vital skills required by Australian business and public sector organisations to help combat the damage a malicious cyber-attack can have on a business,” he says.

“The qualification criteria for the awards are heavily weighted on quality delivery by expert instructors at exceptional facilities - as experienced by our clients and documented in their testimonials and evaluations.”

Sean Lim, COO of EC-Council, mirrors Duffields feelings about the win.

“We are delighted that DDLS has won the 2016 EC-Council Circle of Excellence Award,” he says.

“It is testament to DDLS’s commitment to providing the highest quality of information security training and to supporting EC-Council in its mission to validate the security professionals’ skills and knowledge by certifying only those that are equipped with the skills to avert a cyber conflict. Congratulations to the DDLS team.”  

According to DDLS, it has seen huge growth in demand for EC-Council courses in the past 12 months from a wide range of organisations. These include government, education, utilities and financial institutions as well as smaller organisations.

DDLS expects demand to continue to grow in Australia over the coming years as Australian businesses address the shortage of nearly one million skilled security professionals worldwide.
