What is a Certified Ethical Hacker?  

To beat a hacker, you need to think like one! This is exactly what this class will teach you. It is the pinnacle of the most desired information security training program any information security professional will ever want to be in to master the hacking technologies.  To think like a hacker, you need to be one!

The definition of an Ethical Hacker is very similar to a Penetration Tester. The Ethical Hacker is an individual who is usually employed with the organization and who can be trusted to undertake an attempt to penetrate networks and/or computer systems using the same methods and techniques as a Hacker.

The objective is to facilitate organizations in ascertaining the vulnerabilities and security flaws before their exploitation by hackers. Ethical hackers mimic the approach adopted by hackers with minimum disruption in services. The extent of the tests depends on the contract between the ethical hacker and the organization.

The CEH Program certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor neutral perspective. The Certified Ethical Hacker certification enhances the skill sets of security administrators, network administrators, security auditors and other IT professionals. Certified Ethical hackers are skilled in identifying the threat vectors in the IT infrastructure and use their expertise in strengthening the defenses against security threats.

Secure Ninja CEH v8 (Certified Ethical Hacker) now incorporates the latest CEH v8 version of the curriculum and Labs.
