CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) Certification Exam Training - Frequently Asked Questions

The CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) exam is designed for advanced-level IT professionals interested in advancing their career in cybersecurity. The CEH exam validates your skills in systematically attempting network infrastructures to find security vulnerabilities which a malicious hacker could potentially exploit.

If you’ve already successfully passed the CompTIA Security+ exam and have a minimum of 5 years of hands-on industry experience in an IT administration role with a concentration in security, you’re ready to start preparing for your CEH certification exam.

The CEH exam covers a range of topics that help demonstrate competency in advanced security skills including:

  • Advanced network penetration testing
  • Governance around standards for security specialists engaged in ethical hacking measures
  • Scanning, testing, hacking, and securing your own systems

 

Before taking the CEH certification exam, you should feel confident in demonstrating your knowledge across these 7 core areas:

  • Network and Information Security Technologies

    Understand the purpose and use for various network, communication, and security technologies to prevent security threats such as malware, DDoS attacks, Botnet, cryptoraphy threats, mobile platform attacks, and more.

  • Analysis & Assessment

    Understand how to analyze and assess data, systems, networks to prevent security attacks.

  • Security

    Demonstrate how to implement advanced information security controls to defend against attacks including web server attacks, SQL injection attacks, Bluetooth attacks, and more.

  • Tools, Systems & Programs

    Demonstrate proficiency in identifying and implementing proper security tools, systems, and programs for a variety of business environments such as network/host base intrusion, anti-malware systems, network/wireless sniffers, and more.

  • Procedures & Methodologies

    Identify and deploy information security procedures and methodologies including cryptography, public key infrastructure (PKI), and SQL injections.

  • Regulation & Policy

    Implement security policies to support regulatory requirements including SOX and PCI-DSS compliance.

  • Ethics

    Understanding of professional code of conduct and appropriate behaviors for ethical hacking, adhering to the First Do No Harm rule.

Individuals with an up-to-date CEH certification on their resume are in high demand. The technical skills validated through the CEH certification exam will help prepare you for advanced-level IT career opportunities such as:

  • Cybersecurity Specialist
  • Information Security Architect
  • Senior Network Administrator

If you’re looking to launch or advance your career in cybersecurity, CEH is one of the most in-demand certifications for mid to advanced-level cybersecurity jobs. We recommend you successfully pass the CompTIA Security+ exam before attempting more advanced certifications, such as CASP+, CISSP or CEH.

Our full suite of career services support includes resume building, LinkedIn profile optimization, mock interview support, career coaching, and job placement support, and specialty workshops, to help ensure you’re positioned for success.
