Certified Ethical Hacker (Voucher Included)

To be successful in beating a hacker, you need to think like one. This ethical hacking certification course immerses you in the hacker mindset and puts you in control with hands-on activities. As a certified ethical hacker (CEH), you use the same techniques as malicious hackers to assess security and identify weaknesses, but for ethical purposes. You will scan, test, hack, and secure your own systems to help prevent potentially catastrophic damage to your organization.

A certified ethical hacker's salary can vary. According to LightCast, the median salary of a certified ethical hacker is $110,500. Additionally, the EC-Council reports that 97% of IT professionals choose C|EH for career growth.

Ethical hacking is attempting to bypass a particular system's security to identify threats and the potential for data breaches within a network. Unlike malicious hacking, this process of ethical hacking is planned, authorized, and completely legal. By locating potential threats and weaknesses, companies can strengthen and reinforce their networks—shielding them against future attacks.

Professionals who obtain the EC-Council CEH certification will open the door to a variety of in-demand ethical hacking jobs and cybersecurity roles, such as:

  • Cybersecurity Analyst
  • Cybersecurity Manager
  • Information Security Analyst
  • Security Analyst
  • Network Security Engineer

These certifications are ideal for any IT professional wanting to learn about ethical hacking.

Yes, you will be prepared for the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification exam and receive an exam voucher with your enrollment.

To sit for the CEH exam, you will need to meet the following requirements:

  • Complete the exam application
  • The CEH (ANSI) program requires the candidate to have two years of work experience in the Information Security domain and should be able to provide a proof of the same as validated through the application process unless the candidate attends official training.

This course is open enrollment, so you can register and start the course as soon as you are ready. Access to your course can take 24-48 business hours.

The course on Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures is designed to equip candidates for the CEH exam provided by EC-Council. It is centered on hacking methods and technology from an offensive viewpoint. The course is kept up-to-date with the latest developments in the field, including new hacking methods, attacks, automated programs, and defensive recommendations from experts. The CEH curriculum is a comprehensive collection of insights from various security experts, academics, industry practitioners, and the security community.

Does it matter if an elite hacker writes a buffer overflow or a script kiddy runs a tool if the target system gets compromised anyway? The point of emphasis here is that the enemy may be intellectually great or small, but he requires just one port of entry to wreck damage while the organization has the entire perimeter to guard with limited time and resources.

EC-Council fulfills its social responsibility by ensuring that only persons with a minimum of two years of security related experience are eligible for the course. In addition, all candidates are required to sign an agreement where they agree to respect the knowledge acquired and not misuse it in any way. The candidate also agrees to abide by all legal laws of the land in the use of thus acquired knowledge. Besides the CEH exam is a tough one to pass as students must have in-depth knowledge to achieve the globally recognized ethical hacking certification.

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. In short, the knowledge you will acquire has practical value to make your work place a more secure and efficient one.

The value of CEH lies in its practical value. Over 20 domains, students are exposed to the business risks involved and the potential damage that can result due to negligence. Candidates are able to make an evaluated opinion regarding the acceptable risk an organization can face should it choose to address a security concern.

The ANSI accredited Ethical Hacking course 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 CEH 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.

Consider this. A security defense course educates regarding proper configuration, firewalls, or rather preemptive security. CEH takes the alternative approach - defense in depth by attacking the systems. This is in sharp contrast to courses that teach defensive tactics alone. CEH imparts offensive tactics supplemented with defensive countermeasures. This ensures that the CEH professional can have a holistic security perspective of the organization.

The remuneration per assignment will vary with specifics of the client environment. However, on an average you can expect to be paid around $15,000 to $ 45,000 per assignment.

Congratulations on becoming a CEH. You have joined elite group of professionals around the world. Your next level is to become a Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT).

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 technology is 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 skill required to execute a hack is much lesser as pre-compiled programs are available to effect havoc with simple point and click.
