ECSAv9: EC-Council Certified Security Analyst

EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) complements the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification by exploring the analytical phase of ethical hacking. While CEH exposes the learner to hacking tools and technologies, ECSA V9 provides you with a real world hands-on penetration testing experience to enhance your skill based competency of penetration testing from testing of testing of modern infrastructures, operating systems and application environments to how to document and write a penetration testing report. Through groundbreaking penetration testing methods and techniques, ECSA class helps students perform the intensive assessments required to effectively identify and mitigate risks to the security of the infrastructure.

This makes ECSA a relevant milestone towards achieving EC-Council’s Licensed penetration Tester, which also ingrains the learner in the business aspect of penetration testing. The Licensed Penetration Tester standardizes the knowledge base for penetration testing professionals by incorporating the best practices followed by experienced experts in the fi eld.

The objective of EC-Council Certified Security Analyst is to add value to experienced security professionals by helping them analyze the outcomes of their tests. ECSA leads the learner into the advanced stages of ethical hacking.

Summary

ECSA/LPT is a security class like no other! Providing real world hands on experience, it is the only indepth Advanced Hacking and Penetration Testing class available that covers testing in all modern infrastructures, operating systems and application environments.

EC-Council’s Certifi ed Security Analyst/LPT program is a highly interactive 5-day security class designed to teach Security Professionals the advanced uses of the LPT methodologies, tools and techniques required to perform comprehensive information security tests. Students will learn how to design, secure and test networks to protect your organization from the threats hackers and crackers pose. By teaching the tools and ground breaking techniques for security and penetration testing, this class will help you perform the intensive assessments required to effectively identify and mitigate risks to the security of your infrastructure. As students learn to identify security problems, they also learn how to avoid and eliminate them, with the class providing complete coverage of analysis and network security-testing topics.
