Ethical hacking is becoming a popular skill for IT operations personnel to have, and an important checkmark for many IT ops positions. By taking the "attacker's perspective," it becomes easier to see the weaknesses in your own environment, and to start shoring up those environments. The EC-Council's Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) is, for many, their first milestone on a career in ethical hacking and security, and Pluralsight has created this series of courses to help guide you through the core material that an entry-level ethical hacker needs.
A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of a target system(s). The CEH credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.
