The control of information is something the elite always does … Information, knowledge, is power.”
– Tom Clancy
No longer will money have dominion over our ability to learn. Penetration testing and ethical hacking are skill sets as in-demand as anything else in the Cyber Security industry. Previous to Cybrary, this type of training was very expensive, and now it is free. Anyone who wants to become a penetration tester, ethical hacker (CEH), now has the opportunity to learn and do so, at no cost.
As the amount of cyber threats continue to grow, so does the Cyber Security industry. The need for capable ethical hackers is a global need. Ethical hackers are “white-hat” hackers (aka the good guys) that penetrate secured systems to highlight flaws and weaknesses in a system. They help government agencies, private businesses and public organizations identify what is secure and what needs to be fixed. If the idea of hacking as a career excites you, you’ll benefit greatly from completing Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking training here on Cybrary. You’ll learn how to exploit networks in the manner of an attacker, in order to find out how protect the system from them. Learning objectives include Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. At the conclusion of this training class, you’ll be able to create an effective vulnerability prevention strategy to prevent the attackers from entering your system.

After completion of this class, and some additional self-study about fundamental ethical hacking and penetration testing strategies, you may be ready to move forward with a certification. The most recognizable ethical hacking certification is the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH), by the EC-Council. This certification verifies that you possess the fundamental knowledge to protect systems using an ethical hacking methodology and framework as your line of defense. The CEH certification is highly valuable to employers, as the need for skilled ethical hackers continues to grow everyday. CEH training has arguably been the most popular security training course in the last decade.
In order to earn the official CEH certification, you must complete one exam. Test-takers must score at least 70 percent on the 125-question, 4-hour exam. The exam may be taken at any VUE or Prometric testing center globally. To best prepare for the exam, check out our free CEH study guide.
