CEH

Certified Ethical Hacker

Accredited-Training-Center-EC-CouncilCEH certification course was developed with an intention to attest the capability of network security or computer professionals. Once the student sufficient knowledge and exposure in troubleshooting techniques and adequate knowledge in terms of network security and computer field, they are awarded with CEH certification. Regular upgradation on latest software and hardware is expected and thus the certification also gets updated periodically.

The major aim of of the course of Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) is to help out various companies to take the requisite measures against dangerous attacks , with continuous attacking of the systems , though being within legal premise so that the vulnerability is checked properly. The major concept is to catch hold of a thief by acting like a thief.

The certified ethical hacker is a hacker certified in the field of ethical or positive hacking. Hacking is a term normally taken to be of negative nature but ethical hacking on the other hand is one such method which involves hacking to counter hackers. The course is certified by EC-Council. The certification provides ethical hackers to hack scan and test in their company or organizations network structure in order to provide for a better network security system. This course in particular provides you a practical environment to simulate the test and assess the loopholes of the organisation.

It is based upon:

  • What is Ethical Hacking?
  • How to perform it without any data theft and data loss?
  • From scanning networks to penetration testing, each and every minor topic is taught.
  • Professionally breaking into network systems of company, owners.
  • Evaluation of the loopholes seen in the simulated tests.
  • Course gives you exposure in professional and legal aspects of Ethical hacking.

The CEH is best suited for those who want to provide cyber security to companies and organisation. Professionals involved in network and data related work which may include the use of internet as a medium of transfer, there is a high risk of loss or theft of data. People who believe that they can provide their services by bypassing and improving security loopholes choose this as their profession. It is best suited for those whose are involved in:

  • Network security.
  • Data administrators.
  • IT risk analyst.
  • Cyber security consultant.
  • Professionals involved in information security.
  • Penetration tester.
  • Government officials dealing with cyber security.
  • A site administrator as there is risk of damage to sites at any instance.

The eligibility criterion is based on the background of a person, whether he is a non-technical, semi-technical or a technical. The course content is based on the above said basis. It is designed for computer network security experts and even for a beginner. Some of the organisations who intake the applicants often prefer candidates having extra knowledge over basic computer knowledge. Like candidates having experience in using languages like C and java are likely to adopt or understand the concept of the course in a much better manner. If a candidate attends an official training with the guidance of an instructor, i.e. instructor-led training (ILT), computer-based training (CBT), online live training, or academic learning, candidate is eligible to pursue any kind of existing EC-Council exam. The eligibility level is for:

  • Security officers and security professionals.
  • Site administrators and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure.
  • People who have knowledge of C & Database.
  • Banking sector officials and data administrators.
  • Students and parents who are from non-technical background.

A certified ethical hacker gets certified by the International council for E-Commerce Consultants (EC-COUNCIL). This is a professional certification and it directly ensures that the person will penetrate the network systems only by permission of the owner and will do so in order to pull off the vulnerabilities of the system. EC-council has trained officials from US navy, CIA, Microsoft, Dell, etc. on ethical hacking. It is also endorsed by AIP, NCCA and NICC from Singapore.

The skills required for hacking into your system without causing any harm is taught by the certified course classrooms in order to pave their way for a brighter and safe future. After passing the certification a CEH develops his skills in the following areas:

  • They achieve the minimum standards for becoming a professional information security specialist in ethical hacking.
  • They simplify the risk of any network or data hazard.
  • They can tell the company how much security is enough?
  • They maintain the confidentiality of their work.
  • Certification makes a person liable to answer for all the work he does.

The EC-Council gives ethical hackers an edge over those who are involved in this field. The certification is both widely and largely accepted as this council is trusted. The reason being the inventor of most of the cyber-security related courses. The certification gives ethical hacker a safety in terms of his activities being judged as legal and not illegal. The companies also get ensured for the activities done by a CEH.

BENEFITS:

  • IT and network related company know the importance of CEH because of his skills and knowledge in the field.
  • The certification is accepted globally. 87 countries so far have acknowledged the EC-Council certification.
  • There is a professional touch to the job.
  • Certification provides a CEH to use the best of his hacking abilities in order to safeguard the interests of the company which a normal hacker cannot be trusted with.
  • Availability is another benefit of certification.
