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 will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and then learn to scan and attack their own networks. No real network is harmed during these instructions. 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. When a student leaves this class, they will have hands-on understanding and experience in Ethical Hacking.
Topics covered include:
- Trojans and Backdoors
- Viruses and worms
- Hacking Web Servers
- SQL Injection
- Physical Security
- Data Loss Prevention
- Patch Management
- Official EC Council Ethical Hacking & Countermeasures Materials
- ProctorU Exam Voucher
- 6 Month CEH iLabs Subscription for practical experience outside of the classroom
This course prepares the student for EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker exam 312-50. Included in the cost of this course is an exam voucher which can be used to sit for the CEH exam when the student is ready.
