The Certified Ethical Hacking training course will significantly benefit security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure.
What makes this program different from others in the market?
The program focuses on hacking techniques and technologies from an offensive perspective. This advanced security program is regularly updated to reflect the latest developments in the domain, including new hacking techniques, exploits, automated programs as well as defensive recommendations as outlined by experts in the field. The CEH body of knowledge represents detailed contributions from security experts, academicians, industry practitioners and the security community at large.
Can I pursue self-study and attempt the exam instead of attending formal training?
The answer is yes. You must show 2 years of work experience in security related field. You must also submit a CEH exam eligibility application and obtain an authorization from EC-Council before you can attempt the exam.
What are Hacking techniques and their technology?
Hacking techniques represent ways and means by which computer programs can be made to behave in ways they are not meant to. These techniques extend beyond the technology domain and can be applied to test security policies and procedures. Hacking technologies are used to refer to those tools and automated programs that can be used by perpetrators against an organization to incur critical damage. As technology advances, the skills required to execute a hack are much lesser as pre-compiled programs are available to effect havoc with simple point and click.
What are course options?
Courses are offered in both Offline, Online and Self-Study
What can I take back to my organization if I certify as a CEH?
EC-Council believes in giving back to the security community as it has partaken of it. When you are a Certified Ethical Hacker, you are more than a security auditor or a vulnerability tester or a penetration tester alone. You are exposed to security checklists that will help you audit the organization’s information assets, tools which will check for vulnerabilities that can be exploited and above all a methodology to assess the security posture of your organization by doing a penetration test against it.
What are the eligibility criteria to apply for the CEH (ANSI) exam?
To be eligible to apply to sit for the CEH (ANSI) Exam, a candidate must either:
Hold a CEH certification of version 1 to 7,
or Have a minimum of 2 years work experience in InfoSec domain
or Have attended an official EC-Council training.
What is the employment value of CEH?
The ANSI accredited Ethical Hacking program is primarily targeted at security professionals who want to acquire a well-rounded body of knowledge to have better opportunities in this field. Acquiring a Certified Ethical Hacking Certification means the candidate has a minimum baseline knowledge of security threats, risks and countermeasures. Organizations can rest assured that they have a candidate who is more than a systems administrator, a security auditor, a hacking tool analyst or a vulnerability tester. The candidate is assured of having both business and technical knowledge.
