As a working professional with a background in programming, I realized that I didn’t possess enough networking knowledge, especially when it came to securing the network. That is when I signed up to train to become a Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH), and upon starting the classroom course, it was evident that I had a lot to learn!
Another added advantage to pursuing this credential was that, since it complied with the NICE Framework and is ANSI accreditated, it has helped me in my career as well! As a pentester, there are a few countries/jurisdictions that require you to have this qualification, so gaining this has helped me enormously!!
The labs provided in the training program were very well integrated, not only teaching you the correct way to perform certain tasks but maintaining the importance of practical application within the industry.
I recommend the course and credential as it opens up a lot of doors, even if you are not working in security, as being security focused within I.T. is a massive benefit to any organization!
