Increasing incidents of cyber attacks and data protection efforts globally are expected to create $35 billion revenue opportunity and employment opportunities for about a million professionals by 2025 for India, IT industry body Nasscom said on Monday. "We estimate that cyber security is about $2.5-3 billion or about 2 per cent of the close to USD 150 billion Indian IT sector.
With the sector on track to reach $350 billion by 2025, we estimate 10 per cent of this to be cyber security," Nasscom Chair Cyber Security Task Force Rajendra Pawar said here. He added that this will create an employment opportunity for about a million people as well."Another important aspect will be start ups. We expect to see about 1,000 start ups coming up in this area. This is because these smaller companies are light footed and yet have the best of technologies. Also, there has been a lot of investor interest in this area as enterprises look to stay secured against rising incidents of cyber attacks.
CEH is used as a hiring standard and is a core sought after certification by many of the Fortune 500 organizations, governments, cybersecurity practices, and a cyber staple in education across many of the most prominent degree programs in top Universities around the globe. Hundreds of Thousands of InfoSec Professionals as well as Career Starters have challenged the exam and for those who passed, nearly all are gainfully employed with successful careers, but the landscape is changing. Cyber Security as a profession is evolving, the barrier to entry is rising, the demand for Skilled Cyber professionals continues to grow, but it is being refined, demanding a higher level of skill and ability. EC-Council raises the bar again for ethical hacking training and certification programs with the all new CEH v10!
Ethical Hackers, System Administrators, Network Administrators and Engineers, Webmanagers, Auditors, Security Professionals in general. And anybody with an interest and curious enough to take delight in solving problems, then CEH is for you.
eMIND Technologies fulfills its social responsibility by ensuring that only persons with a minimum of two years of security related experience are eligible for the course. In addition, all candidates are required to sign an agreement where they agree to respect the knowledge acquired and not misuse it in any way. The candidate also agrees to abide by all legal laws of their respective countries of residence in the use of thus acquired knowledge. Besides the CEH exam is a tough one to pass as students must have in-depth knowledge to achieve the globally recognized ethical hacking certification.
eMIND Technologies places great emphasis on the quality of its instructors. A 17-year-old will not be teaching security to professionals at our training centers. Certainly, experience is the greatest teacher. However, EC-Council adheres to a code of ethics and encourages security professionals with significant years of teaching experience in the industry and a security background to handle our security related courses.
When you are a Certified Ethical Hacker, you are more than a security auditor or a vulnerability tester or a penetration tester alone. You are exposed to security checklists that will help you audit the organization’s information assets, tools which will check for vulnerabilities that can be exploited and above all a methodology to assess the security posture of your organization by doing a penetration test against it. In short, the knowledge you will acquire has practical value to make your work place a more secure and efficient one.
The ANSI accredited Ethical Hacking program is primarily targeted at security professionals who want to acquire a well-rounded body of knowledge to have better opportunities in this field. Acquiring a Certified Ethical Hacking Certification means the candidate has a minimum baseline knowledge of security threats, risks and countermeasures. Organizations can rest assured that they have a candidate who is more than a systems administrator, a security auditor, a hacking tool analyst or a vulnerability tester. The candidate is assured of having both business and technical knowledge.
Hacking techniques represent ways and means by which computer programs can be made to behave in ways they are not meant to. These techniques extend beyond the technology domain and can be applied to test security policies and procedures. Hacking technologies are used to refer to those tools and automated programs that can be used by perpetrators against an organization to incur critical damage. As technology advances, the skills required to execute a hack are much lesser as pre-compiled programs are available to effect havoc with simple point and click.
The value of CEH lies in its practical value. Over 18 domains, students are exposed to business risks and the potential damage that can occur due to negligence. Students will be able to make an informed decision regarding the amount of risk a company can face if it chooses to address a security concern.
Consider this: A security defense course educates candidates regarding proper configuration, firewalls, or rather preemptive security. CEH takes the alternative approach – defense in depth by attacking the systems. This is in sharp contrast to courses that teach defensive tactics alone. CEH imparts offensive tactics supplemented with defensive countermeasures. This ensures that the CEH professional can have a holistic security perspective of the organization.
