CEH Hall Of Fame 2021

Yuri Novikov

LoyaltyOne Co.

My Recent Accomplishments:

Switching to a cyber security centric career, obtaining my CEH Master designation, obtaining AWS certifications and in-depth knowledge, participating in multiple CTF competitions, growing my experience on platforms such as Hack The Box.

What would not have been possible without CEH?

We run a security-initiated lunch and learn program. In 2019, the security team embarked on a group study track to obtain the CEH, which involved each individual – Preparing and presenting the material – Designing hands-on exercises – Obtaining the CEH certificate.

How did CEH contribute to your career?

CEH has provided the base knowledge to tackle more advanced challenges and has increased both my capabilities as well as engagement in cyber security.

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

The security-conscious mindset that the CEH brings allows me to look at the world through a different lens and always be on the lookout for potential vulnerabilities and improvements. During the pandemic, I have had the opportunity to spread this knowledge.
