Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)


The most effective cybersecurity professionals are able to predict attacks before they happen.  Training in Ethical Hacking provides professionals with the expertise and insight necessary to prepare for and react to malicious intrusion. 

This class will immerse students in an interactive environment where they will be shown how to 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.

Students then learn how intruders escalate privileges and the necessary steps to secure a system. Students will also learn about Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation in the process.
