What would not have been possible without CEH?

I have successfully penetration tested the whole company network, compromised various Windows and Linux machines, and offered successful mitigations to these discovered vulnerabilities.

How did CEH contribute to your career?

Becoming a CEH Master has given me the belief that I can progress further in the cyber security industry and inspired me to go further with my professional qualifications, hopefully enabling me to attain CREST accreditation at some point.

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

I have installed, and penetration tested a secure contactless payment system in a local business during the pandemic, helping to keep the business running.
