I develop software application, and naturally, application security is a critical attribute. I decided to take up the Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) program to understand the perspective of hackers, and now, I am a better developer. My software development experience helped me to grow in my career. Besides that, having hands-on experience made me proficient. The continuous education with training programs like C|EH and Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (C|HFI) helped me to grow out of my technical blind spots.
I came to know about C|EH in 2006. At that time, there were not many accessible, affordable, and neatly structured training programs available for new the cybersecurity enthusiasts, however, C|EH seems to fill that gap. One thing that I really liked about C|EH was its high-quality content and the trainer assigned to deliver it. I feel blessed to be trained by Belly, an experienced cybersecurity expert from Indonesia. He demonstrated the tools really well and was able to relate the theoretical concepts to real-life scenarios. The training material was clear and understandable, especially for newbies. Apart from being instructor-led, the step-by-step practical instructions guided me through the real-time labs. It gives new learners confidence and solid understanding as to how cybercriminals act. All the concepts covered under web and mobile application testing are so important to me. This hands-on program helped me to build important industry-related skills, such as SQL Injection, CSRF, XSS, broken authentication, cookie tampering, and many more.
For those new to the CyberSec industry, you should be prepared to spend enough time on the job. It takes time to gain experience and become better at your work. Or go for the ANSI accredited C|EH program to gain hands-on experience.
