Overview

Who is a Certified Ethical Hacker?

A Certified Ethical Hacker is a specialist typically working in a red team environment, focused on attacking computer systems and gaining access to networks, applications, databases, and other critical data on secured systems. A CEH understands attack strategies, the use of creative attack vectors, and mimics the skills and creativity of malicious hackers. Unlike malicious hackers and actors, Certified Ethical Hackers operate with permission from the system owners and take all precautions to ensure the outcomes remain confidential. Bug bounty researchers are expert ethical hackers who use their attack skills to uncover vulnerabilities in the systems.

The CEHv11 course is now accredited under the NCSC Certified Training Scheme.

'I had an exceptional learning experience with Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH)! Every bit of the program was filled with a lot of information. It gave me full-fledged exposure to various pen testing techniques and helped me build the skills required for an amazing InfoSec career. I absolutely loved the high-quality content of the program and the virtual labs included in it. For me, the theory and practical sessions of the program supported each other brilliantly.'
