Why is CEH the most sought after Cybersecurity Certification?
1. EMPLOYER CENTRIC
Engineered in collaboration with subject matter experts, every module of the CEH is specially designed to meet the exacting standards required by militaries. That makes it even more of an asset for organizations in critical infrastructure industries like finance and banking, telecommunications, healthcare, energy, logistics etc. No wonder then that 7 of the Fortune 10 and 47 of the Fortune 100 demand CEH over every other Certified Program available.
2. THE BEST SALARIES
Certified Ethical Hackers draw the best Salaries in Cybersecurity jobs, across the US. CEH’s are versatile and fill a number of job roles with average salaries ranging $70k – $108k. Enough said.
3. NOTHING LIKE THIS EVER BEFORE, OR AFTER
Nearly 2 decades ago, EC-Council was the first to create a framework for Ethical Hacking viz “The 5 Phases of Ethical Hacking”, giving the world a repeatable, measurable methodology for identifying vulnerabilities and the corresponding exploits available. By establishing this unique methodology and common definitions, CEH created an entire profession that grew into Cybersecurity “pop culture”!
4. CATEGORY LEADER
CEH is the benchmark for Ethical Hacking for large Multinationals, Governments, Intelligence Community, NATO, and over 2000 of the best Universities, Colleges, and Training Companies in over 140 countries. Since its inception, C|EH has consistently been ranked as one of the most desirable cybersecurity certifications, year on year. It is repeatedly featured in Forbes, CSOonline, Security Boulevard, cybersecurity ventures, Dice, Computerworld and essentially every publication that matters in Cybersecurity.
5. AS HANDS ON AS CAN BE
CEH is the brand reference of the industry; it sets the standards that others follow. To uphold and ensure the integrity of CEH, the exam is proctored, online and offline. To provide hands-on training, the CEH program is coupled with its own iLabs cyber range, accessible 24*7. That’s not all. There’s the CEH Practical, a 6-hour rigorous exam that mimics real-world scenarios, testing and separating the best from the rest. The ones who make it past both the exam and the practical, become CEH-Masters, the crème-de-la-crème among Ethical Hackers!
6. VALIDATED BY AUTHORITIES & INFLUENCERS
For 11 years, EC-Council has played a critical role in certifying US DoD approved Cybersecurity workforce management program.
Also, UK’s GCHQ provided the GCT (GCHQ Certified Training) accreditation to EC-Council’s globally renowned Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) programs.
American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is another accreditation that CEH holds, a testament to the rigorous standards set by the program.
The CEH Course curriculum maps 100% to the “Protect and Defend” Domain ensuring relevancy for any organization following the job role categorization of National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) Special Publication 800-181.
