Cyber attacks are becoming increasingly frequent and efficient, and constantly making the headlines, from financial fraud to data breaches. With Certified Ethical Hacker Version 7, corporations and government agencies are able to boost their cyber security expertise, allowing them to evolve right along with the latest threats.
EC-Council Academy is proud to have been chosen as one of the 35 selected EC-Council training partners, out of hundreds globally, to launch the CEH v7 training class. Delegates of this training course were among the first to receive hands-on training for CEH v7’s newest contributions:
- Frankenstein, a user-manageable hacking and penetration tool repository interface
- iLabs, a virtual lab vulnerability testing environment
Numerous private corporations and government agencies were represented by the delegates of this training class, including KOMLEK, Sapura Secured Technologies, Royal Malaysia Police, MIMOS Berhad, and the Ministry of Human Resources. MD. Taha Ayub, Chief Information Security Officer at Sapura Secured Technologies, said, “The knowledge gained from CEH v7 is something I can use directly at work, every day, and it’s a great benchmark for our security’s current state of health.”
CEH is an accepted standard for the United States Department of Defense, via DoD 8570.01-M, Change 2. Directive 8570 sets the baseline requirements for government employees performing information assurance (IA) functions within the Department of Defense workforce. CEH, including its latest version 7, cover this directive’s requirements for Computer Network Defense Service Providers (CND-SP) at the analyst, infrastructure support, incident responder, and auditor levels.
“CEHv7 is the most advanced, real-world specific and comprehensive training program to date for the ethical hacker,” said Jay Bavisi, president and co-founder of EC-Council. “For those professionals who complete the training program, they will walk away with advanced knowledge and training tactics against real-world hackers and become stronger network defenders at their companies and institutions.”
A closing ceremony was held to celebrate the first global launch of CEH v7 training. After completion of the 5-day training class, in which delegates completed the version 7 exam and were officially granted the title of Certified Ethical Hacker, Senior Engineer Syed Mohd Noor Khairuldin, of Mimos Bhd., said, “CEH v7 is proven and practical. It’s real hacking!”
