Cisco Systems

My Recent Accomplishments:

Offensive penetration testing through major firewalls like Palo Alto, Checkpoint, Cisco ASA.

What would not have been possible without CEH?

I was able to run penetration tests through Palo Alto firewalls and verified several attacks that a firewall can prevent. This could not be possible without the knowledge of offensive security that I gained in studying CEH.

How did CEH contribute to your career?

It helped me understand offensive security tools and techniques that I would not have understood without the CEH course. Also, by becoming CEH certified, I started analysing attacks on defense appliances like firewall, anti-virus, IPS.

During the pandemic, did your role become more challenging? If so, how?​

The pandemic increased phishing emails. I could easily identify a phishing email by the knowledge I gained in CEH, and I also helped my family and friends identify phishing scams.
