CEH Hall Of Fame 2021

Yakov Shmelev


My Recent Accomplishments:

Penetration Tester position at PricewaterhouseCoopers. Several CVEs, Hall of Fame of Deutsche Telekom, and a big list of great cybersecurity certifications.

What would not have been possible without CEH?

Obtaining a position at PwC would not have been possible without CEH because CEH confirms knowledge in many topics of offensive cybersecurity.

How did CEH contribute to your career?

CEH was a starting point and gave an understanding that obtaining cybersecurity certifications is not just a cool achievement but also gives necessary skills in career development.

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

After obtaining CEH, I started to research open-source projects and even registered a new CVE.
