New Delhi, India – 16th March 2019: The Institute of Technology and Science (ITS) announced a partnership with EC-Council University (ECCU) to promote cyber security skill development for its students. With this partnership, ITS students can now gain access to the cybersecurity curriculum of EC-Council University, which is recognized globally.
