450 Global Training Centers Nominated, 25 Selected Worldwide, 8 in the USA, 1 in St. Louis

(February 2, 2011) St. Louis, MO – Hacker University is pleased to announce it has been asked by EC-Council, the leading international certification body in information security, to participate in the Global Launch of CEH v7 - the most advanced information security and ethical hacking training program in the world which is not yet publicly available.

Only 15 students will be allowed to attend this exclusive, cutting-edge class the week of March 14, 2011 in St. Louis – becoming one of the world's first CEH v7 certified professionals.

Hacker University's Global Launch instructor and co-owner, Dave Chronister, is thrilled to be a part of this revolutionary event. "I am excited at the universal recognition this event brings the city of St. Louis as well as Hacker University. CEH version 7 breaks away from its earlier releases with more emphasis on techniques and methodologies hackers use to carry out attacks but more importantly, it provides countermeasures to better protect your corporation's networks from malicious attacks."

Chronister also "trained the trainers" for CEH v7, authored questions for the CEHv7 exam, is an EC-Council appointed CEH v7 instructor, as well as CEH v7 certified himself and a professional hacker for Hacker U's parent company, Parameter Security. He is also recipient of the 2010 EC-Council Award "Instructor, Circle of Excellence" and was recently recognized at Hacker Halted USA.

The 15 lucky students selected to participate in the launch of CEH v7 will receive a Netbook complete with class materials pre-loaded and is theirs to keep; hard-copy commemorative 4-color courseware with study guides, labs and practice exams; breakfast, lunch and snacks each day; exam proctoring on the last day of class; free "second pass" voucher; commemorative metal plated certification of attendance with unique individual ID; VIP access to EC-Council's Hacker Halted & TakeDownCon conferences; lifetime membership to Hacker University with reduced rates on additional information security classes; celebratory CEH v7 VIP Global Launch Reception and much more.
