Certified Professional Ethical Hacker

C)PEH Certified Professional Ethical Hacker Badge

To protect an information system you need to be able to see that system through the eyes of the attacker. The Certified Professional Ethical Hacker certification course is the foundational training to Mile2’s line of penetration testing courses because it teaches you to think like a hacker.  Therefore, you can set up dynamic defenses to prevent intrusion. 


First, you will learn the value of vulnerability assessments.  Then, you will discover how to use those assessments to make powerful changes in an information system’s security.  Additionally, you will learn how malware and destructive viruses function and how to implement counter response and preventative measures when it comes to a network hack.
