Modern scanners frequently miss the vulnerabilities chosen for the course, or the exploitation methods are not well known.

Certified Information Security Manager (CISM) Training

Acquiring the CEH credential is an outstanding achievement that arms professionals with hands-on skills to identify vulnerabilities and threats in systems. But in a world where cybersecurity isn't just about finding vulnerabilities but also strategically managing and governing information security, the CISM certification takes precedence. Pursuing CISM after CEH seamlessly bridges the gap between technical know-how and managerial acumen. It emphasizes a deep understanding of managing and governing a company’s information security program, ensuring that you're not just adept at understanding threats but also proficient in formulating strategies, policies, and leadership directives to counteract them. With CISM, professionals broaden their career horizons, making themselves invaluable assets in roles that demand both technical expertise and strategic vision in information security management.

Expert-Level Courses

If you have already attended the trainings mentioned above and you are at a more advanced stage of the learning path, you are now an expert! You can choose the ones that are suitable for you among the following trainings. 

Advanced Windows Exploitation (AWE) Training

To attend this course, delegates must be experienced in developing windows exploits and understand how to operate a debugger. Familiarity with WinDbg, Immunity Debugger, and Python scripting is highly recommended. A willingness to work and put in real effort will greatly help attendees succeed in this cybersecurity training.

EC Council Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator Training

Prior completion of CEH training would be an advantage for the delegates. The CHFI program is designed for all IT professionals involved with information system security, computer forensics, and incident response.
