The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) is a vendor-neutral certification. This certification verifies a candidate’s knowledge of network security, access controls, cryptography and security protocols. The certification also helps the candidates to understand the importance of vulnerability assessments by providing industry knowledge and skills in Vulnerability Assessments. In doing so, the CEH student is able to understand how malware and destructive viruses function. In addition, the CEH course helps students learn how to implement counter response and preventative measures when it comes to a network hack. The CEH is an ideal certification for network security professionals, cloud security professionals and system administrators who are responsible for managing an enterprise IT environment.
