Posted by Rubel Khan on June 30, 2009

CEH v6.1 is the latest certification course in EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacking program.

Over the years, EC-Council’s experience has translated into a wealth of knowledge and information that enables governments and corporations to take preemptive measures against malicious attackers. By obtaining the CEH v6.1 certification, technical personnel can enhance their technical and business skills with the latest body of knowledge.

What’s new in version 6.1? View modules with new slide content!

This class will immerse students in an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan, test, hack, and secure their own systems. The lab-intensive environment gives each student in-depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security systems.

Students will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and then be led into scanning and attacking their own networks. No real network is harmed. Students then learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Students will also learn about Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows, and Virus Creation. When students leave this intensive five-day class, they will have hands-on understanding and experience in Ethical Hacking. .

Target Audience
EC-Council’s CEH certification seeks to fortify the application knowledge of security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone concerned about the integrity of their network infrastructure. This course prepares students for EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker Exam 312-50.
