  • An Ethical Hacker is a person employed and trusted by an organization to penetrate the network and computer systems using the same methods as a hacker. Similar to a penetration tester, the goal of the ethical hacker is to assist the organization in taking preemptive measures against malicious attacks by hacking the system.

    Hacking is a felony crime within most countries, including the United States. As an Ethical Hacker, the activities are performed on request and under contract with the organization; therefore bypassing any legal consequences for the activities performed.

    The challenge and benefit of the Ethical Hacking is the same: to catch the criminal, one must think like the criminal. This requires a level of creativity and thinking “outside the box” to ensure that organizations have adequately protected their information assets from the numerous methods of attacks that can be perpetrated against them.

    A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skill professional who understands and can identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems. The purpose of the certification is to strengthen the applicable knowledge and trust of security officers, auditors, security professionals, and site administrators.

    Specific topics of CEH cover:
    • Fundamentals of Ethical Hacking
    • Footprinting
    • Scanning technologies
    • Enumeration
    • Trojans, backdoors, worms, and viruses
    • Session Hijacking
    • Denial of Service
    • Hacking of Systems, Web Services, and Linux
