EC-Council Foundation Announces Partnership with University of Connecticut School of Business for TakeDownCon

Some 250 information-technology professionals will learn about the latest threats in cyber security, gain a better understanding of the minds and motives of hackers, and learn how to effectively defend against cyber-attacks during “TakeDownCon: Ethical Hacking and Cyber Security Conference” on June 13-14 at the University of Connecticut campus in Stamford.

The prestigious event is sponsored by the EC-Council Foundation, the non-profit sister organization of the creators of Certified Ethical Hacker. The organization has announced that the UConn School of Business will be its partner in the endeavor. The school’s Connecticut Information Technology Institute (CITI) will be the presenting partner for the state’s first hacking and offensive cyber security conference.

The event will include two days of presentations from renowned security experts, networking and information sharing with some of the top industry leaders, and a Chief Information Security Officer Summit for high-level executives.

“At UConn’s Connecticut Information Technology Institute in Stamford, we are committed to preparing our corporate and institutional communities for success in today’s rapidly evolving IT environment,” said Dean John A. Elliott. “We bring educational opportunities, professional development and focused solutions to the information technology community.”

The partnership will unite thought leaders and decision makers from the public, private, defense, law enforcement, and intelligence sectors who want to learn about and discuss some of today’s key security challenges that have emerged from digital connections.

“TakeDownCon is more than an event – it’s a necessity based on current and constant threats of our technologically dependent society,” said Eric Lopez, senior director of EC-Council. “Together with the University of Connecticut, we will educate and inspire a new community of cyber security professionals.”
