I started as a cybersecurity enthusiast. I’ve learned about networking, servers, proxies, firewalls, IDS, IPS, and many such concepts. Then I took a job that allowed me to put my learnings to practice – vulnerabilities assessments and pen-testing. To gain advanced technical skills, I opted for EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH). Initially, the widespread reputation and years of experience of EC-Council attracted me towards C|EH. I was assured that the program would empower me with strong, foundational and advanced knowledge. I knew it could further my career. Personally, I found C|EH v10 courseware excellent! The training material was very helpful and instructive. My learnings made me comfortable to explore more about cybersecurity. Apart from all the mentioned attributes, the training came with intense real-time lab sessions. It was these virtual labs that introduced me to hundreds of tools. I’m delighted to learn a standard procedure for performing pen-testing.
No cybersecurity beginner should ever stop learning. I was not afraid of accepting challenges, and that’s what helped me to grow in my professional career.
