EC–Council Certified Security Analyst / Licensed Penetration Tester (ECSA/LPT)

ECSATake your ethical hacking skills to the next level with our EC–Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) course, giving you professional recognition as a licensed penetration tester (LPT).


Computers around the world are being victimized by rampant hacking that is executed so flawlessly that the attackers compromise a system, steal everything of value and completely erase their tracks within 20 minutes. And that's why professionals with certified hacking skills are in such high demand.

 

A penetration tester is very similar to an ethical hacker. The ethical hacker is usually employed with an organization and is trusted to attempt penetrating networks and/or computer systems using the same methods as a hacker.

 

By attending this five-day course you'll develop knowledge of an ethical hacking methodology that can be used in a penetration testing or ethical hacking situation. You'll cover topics including intrusion detection, policy creation, social engineering, DDoS attacks, buffer overflows and virus creation. Plus you'll get hands-on experience on how to conduct ethical hacking and have the opportunity to scan, test, hack and secure your own systems.

 

This training is a follow-up course for those who have passed the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker. By attending this course and successfully completing the ECSA exam on the final day you'll gain internationally recognized certified security analyst status.
