The EC Council is a professional organization that certifies individuals in various e-business and information security skills.

Ethical hacking is an authorized practice of bypassing system security to identify potential data breaches and threats to a particular network. Ethical hackers’ primary aim is to investigate the system of a network for weak points that could be exploited and destroyed by malicious hackers.
Mr. Domingo—who earned his Bachelor of Science in Information Technology degree, with specialization in Network Security, from UE in its 70th Yearend Commencement Rites on April 26, 2018, at the PICC Plenary Hall—ranked seventh overall in the Global Ethical Hacking Leaderboard with an average of 77%. A Valenzuela City resident, Mr. Domingo works at the Makati City-based Ion Management Solutions.
To be recognized in the Ethical Hacking Leaderboard, participants must undergo and solve a series of security-related real-world challenges and complex scenarios.
As an accomplished UE student, Mr. Domingo was a College Scholar for three consecutive semesters, from the Second Semester of School Year 2016-2017 up to the Second Semester of SY 2017-2018. He was also recognized as an Exemplary Academic Performance Awardee in UE’s 2018 Recognition Day. He also served as Intermission Committee Head of UE CEng’g Caloocan’s League of Information Technology Students (LITS).
Two of Mr. Domingo’s researches were published in international journals. He was a co-author of the research on “Expanded 128-bit Data Encryption Standard,” which was published in the International Journal of Computer Science and Mobile Computing. He is also the author of the presentation on “Comprehensive Study in Preventive Measures of Data Breach Using Thumb-Sucking,” which was presented in the 5th International Conference on Future Data and Security Engineering in November 2018 in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
In 2017, he earned a Cisco Certified Network Associate Routing and Switching certification valid until October 2020. He was also accepted into the Cisco Global Cyber Ops Scholarship from April to August 2018.
