The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) Course teaches learners about the essentials of ethical hacking, the techniques used by cybercriminals to hack organisations and how businesses can be protected from these attacks. An ethical hacker understands how to follow techniques that attackers would normally use. Just running scans using automated tools is insufficient, because as good as security scanners may be, they will identify false positives. Additionally, they can also miss a lot of vulnerabilities for a variety of reasons, including the fact that the vulnerability or attack may not be known yet. The Certified Ethical Hacker exam validates that those holding the certification understands the broad range of subject matter that is required for someone to be an effective ethical hacker.
