Certification Process

Certified Ethical Hacker Training

A Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) is a skilled professional who performs hacking using the same tools and knowledge as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security vulnerabilities of a system. They deliver legitimate services to organizations and IT companies.

They keep tab on possible security threats like viruses, trojans, and other malware. To perform their function well, CEHs must keep themselves updated about the latest hardware and software. They must be aware of the ethics of using their skills while testing systems and have good knowledge of IT infrastructure.

They may create and run scripts to test for potential or attempted breaches, and if found, they report it in detail and provide an assessment of the risk to the IT systems. They also communicate with clients to explain the results of their security assessments. They must possess thorough problem-solving skills.

Ethical hacking is the authorized and legitimate practice of bypassing system settings or network security to investigate and detect vulnerabilities and weaknesses that can be exploited by malicious hackers. This ensures visibility of the security posture of the system and plays a vital role in providing the client with the list of activities to perform to close the gaps. This helps keep clients’ assets safe and thus establishes credibility with customers.

The current trend of increased malware, viruses, and ransomware has increased the need for ethical hackers. They detect and investigate any possible breaches and report it to concerned authorities, along with a remediation plan. They must keep their observations confidential.

You must be fully aware of the roles and responsibilities of an ethical hacker. An ethical hacker ensures the security of an organization against intruders and malicious hackers by identifying vulnerabilities, or weaknesses, in the IT systems.

Some of the responsibilities of an ethical hacker are as follows:

  • Ethically testing IT systems to identify weaknesses that can be compromised by malicious hackers
  • Working with developers to advise the possible security needs and the steps to be incorporated to ensure adequate security
  • Updating security policies and requirements
  • Providing recommendations on how to mitigate the risks of breaches and malicious attempts and possible solutions
  • Providing training and conveying to the employees about the necessary awareness measures to be practiced.

The academic requirement usually mentions having a graduate degree in Computer Science or a related field as a minimum criterion for the entry-level job posting. However, getting a certification increases your chances of getting hired by many times. With recruiters preferring to recruit certified ethical hackers, you must consider getting one.

These are the commonly well-known and accepted certification programs:

  • Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH): This is the most highly recognized certification program.
  • GIAC (Global Information Assurance Certification) Penetration Tester (GPEN)
  • Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP).

The EC Council offers a Certified Ethical Hacker Program which is a core training program for IT security professionals. The ethical hacker, also termed as “White Hat” hacker is trained in techniques to intrude a company’s network and system infrastructure in order to detect any vulnerabilities that may lead to malicious attacks or attempted breaches to the security of the company.

The Certified Ethical Hacker Program is a comprehensive Training Program to train you on the most advanced and latest tools and techniques used by the grey hat or black hat hackers to break into the organization. This training program provides an interactive, hands-on learning environment. According to CEH, there are five phases of ethical hacking that you will be dealing with:

  • Reconnaissance
  • Gaining access
  • Enumeration
  • Maintaining access
  • Covering your tracks

There are four modes of learning through this training program which is as follows:

  • iLearn (Self-study)
  • iWeek (Live online)
  • Master class (Live online)
  • Training partner (In-person) 

CEH v10 aims at making candidates more proactive and aggressive in defending their networks against cybercrime. The new modules are as follows:

  • IoT security: The boom of IoT in every field has introduced affordable and smart devices that are prone to being compromised by hackers. CEH v10 incorporates this module to explore these devices to check possible vulnerabilities and threats.
  • New business tools: With the growing technologies, especially data science, tools like Artificial Intelligence, cloud computing, and machine learning are used by almost all organizations. This also makes them prone to malicious attacks and so these terms are incorporated in the updated version.
  • Practical exercises: CEH v10 includes practical exercises to get hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge of the same.

With the above changes in the updated version, the exam aims at developing the following capabilities:

  • Use viruses and malware to identify the weaknesses of the system
  • Scanning the network to detect any possible vulnerabilities
  • Steganography and steganalysis
  • Perform OS banner grabbing
  • Competency in detecting attack vectors

The benefits of a CEH are as follows:

  • Upgrade your knowledge about the vulnerabilities and risks

The hackers innovate new ways to intrude into the security of the system. Not just as a career choice, but knowledge of hacking and possible risks will help you safeguard the system. You can detect possible targets and weaknesses of your network. You can also apply your knowledge to your business.

  • Understand the perspective of a hacker

You need to think like a hacker to identify the possible targets. You need to think out of the box to understand what approaches could be taken. Black hat hackers are innovative and creative in their methods, and white- hat hackers need to think alike to stay ahead in the game.

  • Learn to use real hacking tools

Hacking courses include access to 140 real-world labs and over 2,200 hacking tools. You will get an in-depth knowledge of these tools as they are applied in real world scenarios.
