Hacker Halted Europe Interviews - Jay Bavisi


In October, EC-Council’s Hacker Halted took place in Europe for the first time. Firebrand attended the conference in Reykjavik, Iceland and interviewed industry professionals about the hottest topics of cyber security.

The first speaker is EC-Council’s co-founder and president Jay Bavisi, who recollects the main ideas of his speech - “The Cyber Security Quagmire: Finding the Panacea”.

His keynote presentation compared the obstacles faced by IT security companies to those faced by pharmaceutical companies. Mr Bavisi pointed out that while the pharmaceutical industry already managed to overcome diseases such as polio through vaccinations, the IT security industry struggles to achieve similar success against cyberspace threats.

He also mentioned that EC-Council would be launching new secure coding training courses, as well as a new E|CSA & L|PT exam in 2014. The new exam will be 100% practical, requiring students to perform a penetration test on EC-Council’s virtual bank.
