Certified Ethical Hacker [CEH] Cyber Security Certifications
Exam Code : CEH-001
A Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)™ is usually employed by an organization who trusts him or her to attempt to penetrate networks and/or computer systems, using the same methods as a hacker, for the purpose of finding and fixing computer security vulnerabilities. Unauthorized hacking (i.e., gaining access to computer systems without prior authorization from the owner) is a crime in most countries, but penetration testing done by request of the owner of the targeted system(s) or network(s) is not. A Certified Ethical Hacker is a professional who uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, understands and knows how to look for the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and fortify them.
The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) covers credible ethical hacking and network security-training program in order to meet the standards of well skilled security professionals. A large number of SMEs and authors have highly contributed towards the content presented in the GAQM courseware.
