Certified Ethical Hacking v8

Prepare for the CEH v8 certification and learn the latest ethical hacking techniques.

Students begin by learning how perimeter defenses work and then by scanning and attacking your own network (no real networks will be harmed), students will learn how intruders operate and the steps they can take to secure a system.

In the interactive, lab-filled environment, students will gain in-depth knowledge and experience with current, essential security systems. They will explore common ethical hacking topics, such as intrusion detection, policy creation, social engineering, DDoS attacks, buffer overflows, and virus creation.

In addition to learning how to scan, test, hack, and secure a system, students will prepare for the latest Certified Ethical Hacker exam. An exam voucher is included with the course registration. The exam will not be administered in class to allow for maximum discussion opportunities and hands-on activities.

Additional fees apply for on-site testing.

Highlights of CEH v8 include:


  • Diagrams of concepts and attacks for clarity and easier interpretation
  • Key industry-standard tools covered in detail
  • Time dedicated to penetration testing
  • Results-oriented, descriptive, and analytical lab manual
  • DVD Toolset 2
