TrainACE offers its CEH certification program as a supplement to the existing background of IT professionals, including auditors, site administrators, security officers and other professionals who are motivated to broaden their knowledge of network infrastructure security. Courses are intended to place students in the mindset of criminal hackers, with a focus on scanning methods, security testing and other tactics demonstrating how to attack and safeguard their own networks. Initial classes center on the efficacy of perimeter defenses, then advance into exploring network vulnerabilities and attacking systems. The curriculum also delves into an attacker’s mindset as they advance through network privileges, and teaches students how to incorporate more intense levels of security. Other topics include detection of intruders, sophisticated engineering tactics and virus development. There will also be sessions highlighting penetration testing as a way to identify network weaknesses and formulate strategies to prevent attacks.
The CEH training in Baltimore, MD., is conducted via classroom-based sessions, live online courses or a self-taught curriculum that enables participants to set their own pace. TrainACE distinguishes itself from other institutions that simply use PowerPoint demonstrations: the majority of course time is spent on hands-on learning with less reliance on lecture. Instructors teach by demonstration and involving students in courses.
