Stronger International Inc. is pleased to announce their Partnership with EC-Council. Stronger International, Inc. is excited to realign with EC-Council and become their newest Authorized Training Center. Stronger International was previously known as IT Training Solutions. In 2008, under the name of IT Training Solutions, the company won the Best Newcomer Award from EC-Council.
Heather Stratford, CEO of Stronger says. “A decade later we are ready to reconnect and become a valued Authorized Training Center. Both of our organizations have grown and we look forward to a strong and consistent relationship in the future.
The first part of Stronger International’s mission is, “To empower organizations to create stronger, more efficient, and more secure cultures”. Partnering with EC-Council will increase Stronger International’s ability to bring greater depth to offerings in those areas. The Inland Northwest can only benefit from greater access to Certifications and skills in cybersecurity.
EC-Council and Stronger International have another area in common. EC-Council is one of the largest cybersecurity certification bodies in the world, and they have chosen to use that status to promote diversity. Stratford further commented, “EC-Council is a big supporter of increasing diversity and woman in cybersecurity which is a main focus and core value of Stronger International. Increasing the number of women in the ranks is important to both organizations.”
According to the 2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study: Women in cybersecurity, women still make up only 11% of the global cybersecurity workforce. Stronger International is both woman owned and has a female executive team.
About Stronger International, Inc.
Stronger International offers high-quality, customized, information technology training and services worldwide.
Stronger International got its start in 2006 under its original name, IT Training Solutions. The company was founded to satisfy a growing need for corporate IT training. Of course, this was before the new threat of state sponsored cyber crime burst on the international scene and the company adapted to meet a new and unprecedented demand for security awareness and cyber crime prevention. The company grew quickly into what is today an internationally respected provider of sensitive, high-risk, cyber security consulting, corporate training and cloud-based educational programs for corporations, education institutions and government/military organizations.
