Tuesday, March 19, 2013 EC-Council, the world's leading provider of certifications and training in the information security domain, has launched Code Uncode, India’s first ever nationwide hunt for the best secure programmer. Kick starting on May 19th, Code Uncode will be a 3 level online competition.






Code Uncode is a nationwide competition for students, professionals, colleges and corporate. The event will bring together existing and aspiring security enthusiasts from all fields of the infosec world from the Corporate and government bodies to academic institutions.

“EC-Council is dedicated to strengthening cyber security across the world and Code Uncode ’13 is an initiative to draw attention to a very key component of the information technology domain- Secure Coding. We wish to provide a platform for students, professionals, existing and aspiring programmers to come together and test their domain knowledge and showcase their talent while competing for the title of India’s Most Secure Coder,” said Jay Bavisi, President, EC-Council.

According to a report by Gartner in 2011, the IT security market of India is expected to have a CAGR of 16.4 percent from 2011-2016.

Frost & Sullivan reveals that nearly 80 percent of Indian business enterprises have reported data theft through online hacking and 90 percent of Indian companies have placed IT security as their priority investment domain. The report states that the cost of computer crimes has reached a whopping USD 10 billion - India is ranked fifth in terms of e- commerce security breaches.

Sighting this trend and treating Cyber Security awareness as an urgent, need of the hour requirement, EC-Council is launching Code Uncode to strengthen a very important part of every organization- Secure Coding. The aim is to discover talent, methods and ideas; and provide a platform for programmers to demonstrate their coding abilities; encouraging development in this part of information security and raise awareness towards increased education and ethics in information security.

“The number of security professionals in India is expanding at an amazing rate and we’re looking forward to giving that community the right talent in secure programming which is a vital part of security,” said Akash Agarwal, Country Manager, EC-Council India. “I’m pleased that India will host the first ever Code Uncode by EC Council and I’m confident that India’s programmers will be able to showcase their exceptional skills at the event”, he added.

EC-Council backed with their vast experience in global competitions and conferences like Hacker Halted, TakeDownCon and Global Cyberlympics, is bringing the global movement and trend to India through Code Uncode.
