TESTIMONIALS

about-us-section-divider
  • Greatly enjoy this course as it brought me up-to-date with some of the emerging exploits that I had not been exposed to over the course of my work. The hands-on labs were good and helpful in understand the tool functionality and challenges in defensing against them for an organizations Enterprise network.
    Daniel A. RicciChief Warrant Officer/Cyber Analyst, U.S. Navy
  • The CEH qualification has meant that I have been able to prove my knowledge within the pen-testing arena to colleagues and external contacts. Coupling the EC-Council qualification with my ISC2 and CISCO certifications enables me to show a broad understanding of many of the key areas to which my job role is currently focused. I feel that this enhances the confidence and increases the "peace of mind" in those that receive my services.
    Nicholas Charles Paul HumphreyCEH, Ministry of Defense, UK
  • I have done my CEH training in the year of 2003 and that was the time I have entered Security field and after doing CEH training, it gives lot of value / growth for my Information security career. I would recommend CEH to anyone specializing in information security domain and the course will give you fundamental knowledge about hacking, threats and the measures to defend your organization. I am sure CEH certification would provide great value to cyber security professionals.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

about-us-section-divider

1. Can I pursue self-study and attempt the exam instead of attending formal training?

The answer is yes. You must show 2 years of work experience in security related field. You must also submit a CEH exam eligibility application and obtain an authorization from EC-Council before you can attempt the exam. For more details, please click HERE.

2. Isn't this knowledge harmful? Why do you make it available so easily to the public?

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 their respective countries of residence 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.

3. Aren't tools meant for script kiddies?

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 here is that the enemy may be intellectually great or small, but he/she requires just one port of entry to wreck damage while the organization has the entire perimeter to guard with limited time and resources.

4. Do reformed hackers teach your course?

EC-Council places great emphasis on the quality of its instructors. A 17-year-old will not be teaching security to professionals at our accredited training centers. Certainly, experience is the greatest teacher. However, EC-Council adheres to a code of ethics and encourages security professionals with significant years of teaching experience in the industry and a security background to handle our security related courses.

5. What makes this course different from others in the market?

The Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures course prepares candidates for the CEH exam offered by EC-Council. The course focuses on hacking techniques and technologies from an offensive perspective. This advanced security course is regularly updated to reflect the latest developments in the domain, including new hacking techniques, exploits, automated programs as well as defensive recommendations as outlined by experts in the field. The CEH body of knowledge represents detailed contributions from security experts, academicians, industry practitioners and the security community at large.

6. What can I take back to my organization if I certify as a CEH?

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.

7. Where does CEH stand when compared to other educational offerings in the field of information security?

Consider this: A security defense course educates candidates 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.

8. What are Hacking techniques and their technology?

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

9. It is all too technical. Do you reflect real-world business issues?

The value of CEH lies in its practical value. Over 18 domains, students are exposed to business risks and the potential damage that can occur due to negligence. Students will be able to make an informed decision regarding the amount of risk a company can face if it chooses to address a security concern.

10. What is the employment value of CEH?

The ANSI accredited Ethical Hacking program 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 Certified Ethical Hacking Certification 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.

11. I am a CEH. What is my level?

Congratulations on becoming a CEH! You have joined an elite group of professionals around the world. Your next level is to become an EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (E|CSA) or proceed with the CEH (Practical).
