Read what Jurgen Vrieze had to say on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6479450623631720448/
For the last 15 years, I have been working in the IT sector and have gained lots of experience working in different verticals, due to which I am already acquainted with most technical info.
I opted for the Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) credential from EC-Council to get some more detailed information on things I didn’t know. My 1st goal was to get better knowledge about the way hackers may attack my systems. My 2nd goal was to be able to better translate technical issues to business risks. I think I’ve achieved both goals and have already applied these to improve security at an operational level.
I completed my one-week of training at TSTC in the Netherlands where the trainer was filled with relevant knowledge. The classroom training was combined with labs that made it easier for me to learn and hone my skills in this developing domain.
According to point of view, the labs were just great, even though, I haven’t finished them all yet. However, my hands-on experience helped me learn what possible ways hackers can use to attack my systems or network.
I recommend the C|EH training to all administrators that want to improve security on their systems. I think the knowledge you gain during this training will help improve resilience and overall security.
