Ethical Hacking Course 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.

Course Description

The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) credential is the most trusted ethical hacking certification
and accomplishment recommended by employers globally. It is the most desired information
security certification and represents one of the fastest-growing cyber credentials required by
critical infrastructure and essential service providers. Since the introduction of CEH in 2003, it
is recognized as a standard within the information security community. CEH v11 continues to
introduce the latest hacking techniques and the most advanced hacking tools and exploits used
by hackers and information security professionals today. The Five Phases of Ethical Hacking and
the original core mission of CEH remain valid and relevant today: “To beat a hacker, you need to
think like a hacker.”

Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Version 11

CEH provides an in-depth understanding of ethical hacking phases, various attack vectors, and
preventative countermeasures. It will teach you how hackers think and act maliciously so that
you will be better positioned to set up your security infrastructure and defend future attacks.
Understanding system weaknesses and vulnerabilities help organizations strengthen their
system security controls to minimize the risk of an incident.
CEH was built to incorporate a hands-on environment and systematic process across every
ethical hacking domain and methodology, giving you the opportunity to work towards proving
the required knowledge and skills needed to perform the job of an ethical hacker. You will be
exposed to an entirely different posture towards the responsibilities and measures required to
be secure.
