EC-Council's Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification first launched in 2003. Since then, it has been continuously updated and is now in its 10th edition. The certification is designed to test your ability to use the knowledge and skills of malicious hackers to help organizations lawfully identify vulnerabilities within their systems before cyber-criminals can exploit them. CEH is considered a great starting point for IT technicians looking to develop computer forensic and penetration testing careers.
Information security professionals are in high demand — job opportunities and salaries are on the rise as organizations seek top talent to help defend cloud-based networks, improve application security and develop innovative threat-reduction strategies.
The Certified Ethical Hacking (CEH) certification isn’t just another credential that IT professionals add to their collection. It’s an important IT role that organizations need in today’s technologically advanced world to protect their systems, data, and IT infrastructure. Ethical hackers are the “white hat” counterparts of cybercriminals who use hacking to attack and exploit private businesses, government agencies, and public organizations. Obtaining the CEH certification demonstrates that you have the knowledge and skills to fill this essential role.
According to the 2018 Hacker Report less than 5% of today’s ethical hackers learned their skills in a classroom. While the majority of ethical hackers do have some form of computer qualification, few have formal certification in the discipline itself. So why would an ethical hacker need anything as ‘establishment’ as formal training and certification?

It's that time of year...vacation season! Residents across the Washington, D.C. metro area are traveling to the many beaches and resorts just a day trip away! For most people, smart phones, tablets, and laptops play a huge role in everyday life, and even more so for those in the technology industry. Nonetheless, summer vacation is no excuse for travelers to neglect their cyber security. In fact, data thieves are more likely to strike when you are most relaxed and in places where people tend to let their guard down.
The internet is full of hackers, and these hackers grow in numbers, strength, and power each and every day. It was recently discovered that a group of hackers had managed to steal in total, around $1 billion from banks through their computers. This is thought to be one of the biggest banking breaches in history, and the robbers didn't even have to physically go to the bank. These hackers got their way into the banks' computer systems and observed the banks' operations. They either set up fake bank accounts to steal money with, or they programmed ATMs to dispense money at specific times. According to Kaspersky Labs, the hackers have attacked 100 banks in 30 countries, all fairly easily. Banks are one of the more prone industries to hacking, but they're not the only ones that need to keep a watchful eye when it comes to hacking incidents.
