Mindanao Teachers Now Certified Secure Computer Users by ECC

46 teachers and trainers from all over Mindanao underwent the Certified Secure Computer User (CSCU) training and certification examination of EC-Council (ECC) hosted by CDO ICT Business Council at Cagayan de Oro College-Phinma Education Network, Cagayan de Oro City. The overall passing rate for the certification training was 93%. 

This marked another successful leg of the series of trainings conducted throughout the country which started in Bacolod last June 30 to July 1.  The succeeding schedules will be in Legazpi City (Luzon) on July 6 and 7 hosted by Legazpi ICT Council-Albay ICT Association, and Metro Manila on July 10 and 11 hosted by Quezon City ICT Council.

This pilot program was jointly created by the National ICT Confederation of the Philippines (NICP) and WISSEN International-Singapore in order to spread the cyber security awareness and enable schools all over the Philippines to equip students through training and certification programs provided by ECC.

Stephanie Caragos, President of NICP, told us - “At this crucial time when cybercrimes are very rampant, we need to make sure that we are all aware and knowledgeable about how to prevent the possibility of being a victim. It all starts with awareness and being a responsible digital products user.  This training surely came at a good time.”

“Now, we have teachers who can help cascade what they have learned to their students and at the same time, we have an opportunity to now conduct certification tests for CSCU on behalf of the EC Council.”, she mentioned further.

“Mindanao teachers are eager to grab this opportunity as they also felt the need to prepare themselves and their students to embrace the country’s digital transformation and the accountabilities that they need to face.”, added Jonathan Arvin Adolfo, Executive Director of CDO ICT Business Council.

The Bacolod-Negros Occidental Federation for Information and Communications Technology (BNEFIT) is the authorized training center (ATC) partner to facilitate and support in the delivery of ECC courses in the Philippines.

EC-Council (ECC) or the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants, is best known as a professional certification body for the IT security field, a professional organization that is headquartered in Albuquerque, New Mexico. It runs an EC-Council University and also operates a series of IT security conferences.
