Apr. 23, 2013

Leading CyberSecurity training and services organization to deliver certification training boot camp on the latest Certified Ethical Hacker v8 release

Alexandria, VA, April 23, 2013.  SecureNinja, https://secureninja.com/ , the leading Cyber Security training and services company in the Washington, DC and Virginia area will offer the much awaited CEH v8 (Certified Ethical Hacker) release training at their state of the art training facility in Alexandria, VA May 20-24 2013.

Websites, Computer systems and Networks of government bodies and organizations worldwide are under constant threat of hacking and intrusion. According to a McAfee Q4 2012 report, the number of mobile malware samples discovered by McAfee Labs in 2012 was 44 times the number found in 2011, meaning 95 percent of all mobile malware samples appeared in the last year alone. These increases in attacks pose threats to security, integrity and confidentiality of information available on the databases stored on the affected systems. The CEH v8 course will provide the knowledge and skills to help Certified Ethical Hackers battle cybercrimes on the internet.

Most Federal Government Agencies, Systems Integrators and Fortune 500 companies including banking and financial institutions are aware of their vulnerability and exposure to cybercrime. They are looking for professionals to strengthen their IT security. The CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) is known globally as the "The World's Most Advanced and Comprehensive Ethical Hacking and Penetration Testing Program" available in the industry today. The goal of this course is to help the attendee master an ethical hacking methodology that can be used in a penetration testing or ethical hacking situation. Students will walk out the door with hacking skills that are in high demand, as well as the internationally recognized Certified Ethical Hacker certification.

The newly updated CEH contains 20 of the most current security domains any ethical hacker will ever want to know as they are planning to beef up the information security posture of their organization. The revamped CEH v8 will contain many enhancements including, core content updates, well-organized content flow, incorporated diagrammatic representation of concepts and attacks, showcasing the latest hacking techniques, pentesting components, updated labs and courseware and popular hacking and security tools videos. Here are a few of the latest advancements the CEH v8 will address and focus on:

•    Security issues to the latest operating systems including Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012
•    Existing threats to operating environments dominated by Windows 7 and other operating systems (backward compatibility)

It is important to note that the Pentagon plans to dramatically boost the ranks of U.S. cybersecurity forces, expanding its number of cyber warriors more than five-fold, the Washington Post reported Sunday. But that strategy immediately confronts a critical shortage of those with the required skills. CEH v8 meets Government and DoD agencies compliance with Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) and DoD Directive 8570.1-M The CEH v8 (312-50) Certification can only be taken by students who have completed the EC-Council-authorized training. Note also that members of the U.S. Federal Government may also take the Certified Network Defense Architect (CNDA) certification. The CNDA program has been designed especially for the United States Government and military agencies. To achieve the Certified Network Defense Architect Certification, you must pass the CNDA exam 312-99.
