EC-Council Launches Industry-First Free AI Cybersecurity Toolkit for Certified Members

The Cyber AI Toolkit, which features 14 hours of online learning, 74 premium videos, and 90 assessment questions, provides EC-Council members practical insights and hands-on experience in tackling AI-driven cyber threats. This innovative program provides real-world scenarios and lessons curated to advance an organization's cybersecurity readiness while enhancing the skills and rapid response for cybersecurity professionals.

In India, the cybersecurity landscape is rapidly evolving with significant trends shaping the industry's future. India has undertaken several steps to contain the effects of cyber threat. Along with being one of the largest markets for internet usage in the world, India reported the largest share of users who experienced any cyber crime, nearly 30 percent higher than the global average. The cybersecurity market across the country was valued at nearly 140 billion rupees, estimated to double by 2025. 

The Government of India has recognized the importance of cybersecurity as a critical component of national security. Under Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership, the Digital India initiative has been pivotal in transforming India into a digitally empowered society and knowledge economy. Emphasizing cybersecurity, the government has launched several initiatives to strengthen the nation's cyber defenses and promote a secure digital environment for all citizens.

Jay Bavisi, Group President, EC-Council, highlighted the importance of equipping cybersecurity professionals with AI knowledge, "As threat actors increasingly weaponize AI to develop more advanced attack techniques, it is imperative that we provide our community of members with the necessary tools and knowledge to counter these threats. By offering this toolkit for free we are bridging the AI Chasm by enhancing global cybersecurity standards and advancing continuous skill development.โ€

The Cyber AI Toolkit responds directly to findings of the latest EC-Council C|EH Threat Report 2024 based on transformative insights gathered from more than 1,000 industry professionals. The report revealed that 83% of cybersecurity professionals have observed significant shifts in cyber-attack methodologies attributed to AI. 80% of organizations have embraced multi-factor authentication as a cornerstone of their defense against escalating cloud threats. Equally crucial is the report's emphasis on continuous training, recognized by 82% of respondents as pivotal in enhancing incident response readiness, and over 70% of participants identify zero-day exploits and social engineering as primary threat vectors.

This stark reality revealed by EC-Council Threat Report 2024 often referred to as the "AI Chasm," highlights the disparity between advancing AI-driven cybersecurity solutions and the evolving tactics employed by threat actors.

With the Cyber AI Toolkit, EC-Council is committed to shaping the future of the cybersecurity industry. From the inception of the CEH program to the introduction of AI-enabled courses and now the Cyber AI Toolkit, EC-Council remains dedicated to democratizing cybersecurity education and equipping professionals worldwide with the skills needed to safeguard digital landscapes effectively.
