EC-Council Certified Security Analyst

Accredited-Training-Center-EC-CouncilEC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) complements the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification by analysing the things found out from the ethical hacking. While CEH exposes the learner to hacking tools and technologies, ECSA takes it a step further by exploring how to analyse the outcome from these tools and technologies. Through ground-breaking penetration testing methods and techniques, ECSA class helps students perform the intensive assessments required to effectively identify and mitigate risks to the security of the infrastructure.

  • The above attributes makes ECSA an important step for achieving EC-Councils Licensed Penetration Tester or LPT, which also develops the learner in the important but uncommon business aspect of penetration testing.
  • The objective of EC-Council Certified Security Analyst is to add valuable knowledge to experienced security professionals by helping them predict the outcomes of their tests. ECSA makes the way for students into the advanced stages of ethical hacking.
  • The Licensed Penetration Tester makes the information a base for penetration testing professionals by incorporating the best sorted practices followed by experienced experts in the field.

Delivery Modes

Virtual Class Room

CEH accredited experts are involved with the job of imparting virtual training to those students are based in different parts of the world. The main advantage of this course is that anyone can undertake this course while they are engrossed with their daily jobs in other fields of interest or they may be taking jobs if they have been certified in ethical hacking or forensic investigations. Module 1to 10 covers the following topics:

  • The Need for Security Analysis
  • Advanced use of Google
  • TCP/IP Packet Analysis
  • Snort Analysis
  • Log Analysis
  • Advanced Exploits and Tools

Module 11to 20 contain the following which contain penetration testing:

  • Penetration Testing Methodologies
  • Customers and Legal Agreements
  • Pre Penetration Testing Checklist
  • Internal Network Penetration Testing
  • Router Penetration Testing
  • Firewall Penetration Testing
  • The other modules i.e., from 21 to 35 discuss about: IDS Penetration Testing, wireless network penetration testing, lost objects penetration testing, VoIP and VPN and reporting after penetration and its analysis and ethics of a Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT)


E-Learning enables students to practice various investigation techniques in a real time and simulated environment. The course tools and programs are preloaded on the virtual machine on the e-servers, thereby saving productive time and effort of the professionals in carrying out the LPT and system analysis (ECSA). Following points tell the role and responsibilities of the EC-Council related to Penetration Testing (LPT). Members vary on their area of knowledge, the development projects at hand and the number of available members. Their contribution can be in many ways, some of which are stipulated below and cannot be ignored at any cost: Denial of Service Penetration Testing Password Cracking Penetration Testing Social Engineering Penetration Testing Stolen Laptop Penetration Testing Application Penetration Testing Physical Security Penetration Testing Database Penetration testing Information leakage Physical security IDS/IPS Authentication OS Security After the penetration testing are mentioned ECSA methods which are invaluable and are the very essence of this course.
