Cyber Security as a profession is evolving, the barrier to entry is rising, the demand for Skilled Cyber professionals continues to grow, but it is being refined, demanding a higher level of skill and ability.

EC-Council raises the bar again for ethical hacking training and certification programs with the all-new CEH v10. The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH v10) program is a trusted and respected ethical hacking training program from EC-Council that any information security professional will need.

This course, in its 10th iteration, is updated to provide the tools and techniques used by hackers and information security professionals alike to break into any computer system. This course will immerse you in a “Hacker Mindset” in order to teach you how to think like a hacker and better defend against future attacks.

It puts you in the driver’s seat with a hands-on training environment employing a systematic ethical hacking process. You will learn how to scan, test, hack and secure target systems. Additionally, the course covers the Five Phases of Ethical Hacking:

  • Diving into Reconnaissance
  • Gaining Access
  • Enumeration
  • Maintaining Access
  • Covering your Tracks

Who should take CEH v10?

  • Ethical hackers
  • System Administrators
  •  Network Administrators and Engineers
  • Web Managers
  • Auditors
  • Security Professionals in General

CEH Certification Exam

The CEH is a 6 hours practical exam built to exacting specifications by subject matter experts in the Ethical Hacking. Exams can be taken at Centriq’s Kansas City and St. Louis locations (either in conjunction with the training class or at a later date).

Top 10 Critical Components of CEH v10

1. 100% Compliance to NICE 2.0 Framework

CEH v10 maps 100 percent to NICE framework’s Protect and Defend specialty area

2. Inclusion of New Module

Vulnerability Analysis 

Learn how to perform vulnerability analysis to identify security loopholes in the target organization’s network, communication infrastructure, and end systems. This module covers the vulnerability management lifecycle, and various approaches and tools used to perform the vulnerability assessment.

IoT Hacking

Understand the potential threats to IoT platforms and learn how to defend IoT devices securely.

3. Focus on Emerging Attack Vectors (e.g., Cloud, AI, ML, etc.)

CEH provides an insight into cloud computing threats and cloud computing attacks. It discusses cloud computing security and the necessary tools. It provides an overview of pen-testing steps which an ethical hacker should follow to perform a security assessment of the cloud environment.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an emerging solution used in defending networks against various attacks that an antivirus scan cannot detect. Learn how this can be deployed through the CEH course.

4. Hacking Challenges at the End of Each Module

Challenges at the end of each module ensure you can practice what you have learned. They help students understand how knowledge can be transformed into skills and can be used to solve real-life issues.

5. Coverage of latest Malware

The course is updated to include the latest ransomware, banking and financial malware, IoT botnets, Android malwares and more!

6. Inclusion of complete Malware Analysis Process

Discover and learn how to reverse engineer malware in order to determine the origin, functionality, and potential impact of a malware. By performing malware analysis, the detailed information regarding the malware can be extracted, analyzed and this is a crucial skill of an ethical hacker.

7. Hands-on Program

More than 40 percent of class time is dedicated to the learning of practical skills and this is achieved through EC-Council labs. Theory to practice ratio for CEH program is 60:40 providing students with a hands-on experience of the latest hacking techniques, methodologies, tools, tricks, etc.

CEH comes integrated with labs to emphasize the learning objectives. It also provides additional labs that students can practice post-training on their own time, through EC-Council’s iLabs platform which students can purchase separately.

8. Lab Environment Simulates a Real-Time Environment 

CEH v10 lab environment consists of latest operating systems including Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 configured with Domain Controller, firewalls, and vulnerable web applications for honing the skills of hacking.

9. Covers latest hacking tools (Based on Windows, MAC, Linux, and Mobile)

The CEH v10 course includes a library of tools that are required by security practitioners and pentesters to find uncover vulnerabilities across different operation platforms. This provides a wider option to students than any other programs in the market.

10. ANSI Accreditation

ANSI accreditation signifies that the certification holder has completed a prescribed course of study designed specifically to meet predefined industry requirements
