CEH v8 released!


EC-Council have finally released the much awaited CEH v8, which now contains 20 of the most up-to-date hacking domains you'll need. Whether it's to strengthen the security of your company or start your own Ethical Hacking career.

The new enhancements includes: core content updates, new content flow, new concepts and attacks, the latest hacking techniques, pentesting components, and many more. Here are some of the latest updates v8 will focus on:
  • Security issues in the latest operating systems. Including Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012
  • Existing threats to operating environments dominated by Windows 7 and other operating systems
  • The latest hacking attacks targeted to mobile platform and tablet computers and countermeasures to secure mobile infrastructures
To beat a hacker, you must think like on and this is exactly what being a Certified Ethical Hacker is all about. Hacking has quickly moved from being something weird and rebellious to a clear sign of power and intelligence. It is now one of the most desired information securities training programs every professional wants.

The course covers all domains needed to test system vulnerabilities and employ countermeasures. The attempts are made using the same methods and techniques as a Hacker.

The objective is to ensure your organisations vulnerabilities and security flaws are found before they are exploited by hackers. Ethical hackers mimic the approach adopted by hackers with minimum disruption in services. The extent of the tests depends on the contract between the ethical hacker and the organisation.
