Mr. Lopez went on to say, “Since we launched our first US based Hacker Halted conference 4 years ago, EC-Council has been flooded with requests to take our world-class conference and training on the road! As a result, we have answered the call and in 2012 EC-Council will deliver three separate, regional, conference events in Dallas, Baltimore, and Las Vegas!”
