Advance Your IT Career! Train for Your CEH Certification

EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)

This ethical hacking course is the most comprehensive ethical hacking course in the world and is a must-have for every cyber security professional’s portfolio. This course immerses students into a hacker mindset where they are shown how to scan, test, hack, and secure systems. The lab-intensive, interactive environment gives students in-depth knowledge and practical experience with current essential security systems.

Students begin by learning and understanding how perimeter defenses work and then are led into scanning and attacking their own networks (no real networks are harmed). Students then continue to learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Intrusion detection, policy creation, social engineering, DDoS attacks, buffer overflows and virus creation is also covered in this ethical hacking course.

Upon completion of this intensive 5-day Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) cyber security training, students will have hands-on understanding and experience in ethical hacking. This course also prepares you for the EC-Council ANSI-accredited Certified Ethical Hacker exam for CEH certification.
