Ben McGee and Jason Cuneo, the President and Vice President of the North Alabama ISSA, had this to say about the newly established partnership between NAISSA and EC-Council: "After evaluating a number of organizations to provide our membership with cyber-focused training, we unanimously agreed that the depth and breadth of the EC-Council courses would be of greatest value to our membership.
