Reference: Investigation by National University Commission (NUC) Regarding Operation of Illegal Universities in Nigeria

Albuquerque, New Mexico City, June 1, 2018 – We refer to the publication dated May 28, 2018 by NUC regarding the closure of various illegal Universities in Nigeria that were carrying out programs without validation from proper authorities.

We note with regret that the good name of EC-Council University has been used by an irresponsible party  that has self-proclaimed itself as a partner of EC-Council University in Ikeja, Lagos. This institution was recently mentioned on the list of 58 illegal universities in Nigeria that have been allegedly shut-down by the National Universities Commission (NUC).

We take the illegal use of our brand assets, the infringement of our intellectual property rights brand and consequently, the damage to our reputation very seriously and as such, we are exploring all legal avenues available to us to protect its brand name. We reserve the right to defend our brand name to the full extent of the law.

EC-Council University is a DEAC accredited, CHEA accredited, and a SARA approved institution, that offers programs such as Bachelor of Science in Cyber Security, Master of Science in Cyber Security, and Graduate Certificate Programs and is a part of the EC-Council Group.

We wish to make the members of the public aware that Ikeja Lagos Study Center is NOT either a partner, affiliate, or part of EC-Council University.

Bill, and the U.S. Government National Security Agency (NSA) and the Committee on National Security Systems (CNSS) certifying EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacking (C|EH), Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (C|HFI), Disaster Recovery Professional (E|DRP), Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) and the Licensed Penetration Tester (L|PT) (Master) program for meeting the 4011, 4012, 4013A, 4014, 4015, and 4016 training standards for information security professionals.
