Ethical hackers attempt to penetrate a computer system or network with the aim of finding security vulnerabilities that could otherwise remain undetected. However, unlike malicious hackers, ethical hackers are given permission to undertake these controlled attacks. Without these harmless penetration tests, security holes could remain unseen, leaving the organisation in a position that a malicious hacker could exploit. Become an Ethical Hacker and you’ll learn to use the same techniques and tools as a cybercriminal. However, instead of exploiting these vulnerabilities, as an Ethical Hacker you’ll document security holes and provide actionable advice on how they can be fixed.
Ethical hackers earn an average advertised salary of £55,000 according to data from ITJobsWatch.
The CEH is a brilliant introduction into the world of Ethical Hacking. You’ll finish your certification with an in demand set of skills covering Intrusion Detection, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. Plus, if you need to break into the field of ethical hacking or penetration testing, the CEH will put you ahead of other uncertified job applicants (assuming you similar experience). It’s a benchmark certification for ethical hackers - “CEH is the original standard,” says Albert Whale, president and chief security officer at IT Security, Inc.
The CEH is the most well-known certification in Ethical Hacking, but it’s not an absolute requirement. At their most basic, certifications are simply a supplement to real-world experience - without this you will only get so far. This certification will help you break into the Ethical Hacking profession, but you’re not guaranteed a career. You’ll get great skills and a renowned certification, but you’ll still need experience to back it all up.
This cert sits in the sweet spot between entry level qualifications like CompTIA’s Security+ and advanced certs like the CISSP. Before attending a CEH training course you should ideally possess at least two years IT experience, a good knowledge of TCP/IP, Windows Server and a basic familiarity with Linux and/or Unix.
At EC-Council’s accredited training centres you’ll be trained by experienced security professionals. You won’t be taught by a 17-year-old reformed hacker – EC-Council adheres to a strict code of ethics and employs experienced instructors with a clean reputation.
The more we know about how the ‘bad guys’ operate, the more secure our systems, data and networks will be. Whilst the knowledge you’ll gain on a CEH course has the potential to be misused, many would argue this far outweighs the benefits of teaching thousands of IT professionals how to better protect their businesses. To help highlight responsibility, EC-Council requires all of their students to sign an agreement, agreeing to respect the knowledge and not misuse it. You’ll also be required to agree to abide by all legal laws of the land in the use of your new knowledge and skills.
To achieve your CEH v8 certification you’ll need to pass exam 315-50 at a Prometric or Pearson VUE test centre. This exam is a 125 question, multiple choice paper covering the 19 CEH domains. To gain your CEH cert, you’ll need to score at least 70%.
Aspen is a gateway to portals, products and services provided by EC-Council for its registered members. As a member you’ll be able to place orders on products and courseware, view your certification(s) continuing education scheme and maintain your certs with EC-Council.
About EC Council
EC-Council was formed as the result of very disheartening research after the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. Founder, Jay Bavisi, after watching the attacks unfold, postured the question, what if a similar attack were to be carried out on the Cyber battlefield? Would the information security community have the tools and resources at their disposal to thwart such an attack? At that time, the answer was no. EC-Council, officially incorporated as the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants was formed to create information security training and certification programs to help the very community our connected economy would rely on to save them from a devastating Cyber Attack. EC-Council rapidly gained the support of top researchers and subject matter experts around the world and launched its first Information Security Program, the Certified Ethical Hacker. With this ever-growing team of subject matter experts and InfoSec researchers, EC-Council continued to build various standards, certifications and training programs in the electronic commerce and information security space.
