EC-Council University was incorporated in Wyoming in 2003 and licensed by the New Mexico Higher Education Department in 2006. The institution was created to educate and train information security professionals. Information security involves in-depth knowledge of a wide array of hardware and software systems as well as the skills and techniques to negotiate them.
EC-Council, the parent company of EC-Council University, is a world leader in certifying professionals in these skills and techniques. However, EC-Council University President Sanjay Bavisi believes that information security professionals must not only have skills and techniques, but they must be educated to step into leadership and managerial roles in their companies, agencies, and organizations. This belief led to the establishment of the Master of Security Science Program and the Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security program.
