A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker. This class will immerse the students into a hands-on environment where they will be shown how to conduct ethical hacking. You will learn an entirely different way of achieving optimal information security posture in their organization; by hacking it! They will scan, test, hack and secure their own systems. The lab intensive environment gives each student in-depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security systems and gives insight into how to perform penetration (pen) testing of existing networks.

This Continuing Education course will significantly benefit security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, IA professionals and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure. This training also helps to prepare you for EC-Council Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures exam. The CEH Program certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective. This certification is now required by DoD for many Information technology positions.
