Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Training Courses - In Person or Online
The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) program is offered by The International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council), an organization that offers both, e-business and information security certification programs. CEH is a relatively new program that is focused on equipping security professionals with the skills needed to conduct ethical penetration testing of their own networks in order to identify and mitigate potential vulnerabilities. The goal of the 5 –day program is to provide security managers with a hands-on experience of how network security technologies work, and to help them identify how hackers look for and identify vulnerabilities to exploit.
Unlike many of the other certification programs, CEH is designed to help IT security professionals better protect their enterprises by getting them to think and act like malicious hackers. As part of the certification process, individuals are taught about hacking laws, intrusion detection and intrusion prevention technologies and about attack vectors such as social engineering attacks, distributed denial of service attacks, buffer overflows, SQL injection attacks, viruses and worms and other approaches. Course material is constantly updated to keep the content up to date with latest attack trends and methodologies according to EC-Council. Those with a CEH certification are considered to have demonstrated adequate business and technical knowledge of security threats, risks and countermeasures. The program is targeted at a broad swath of IT professionals, including security managers, network and systems administrators and auditors.
Individuals who wish to pursue CEH certification need to have at least two years of information security experience. In addition, they also are required to sign an agreement attesting to their willingness not to misuse the hacking skills they acquire from the program. The contract also requires them to abide by all relevant legal obligations. All EC-Council certification exams are delivered through Prometric Prime or through Vue. Students can choose to take the exams online at Prometric’s Web site, or at one of the exam centers belonging to Prometric or Vue. Those who already have a CEH credential are eligible to take EC-Council’s Licensed Penetration Tester exam.
