Course Overview

Are you an ambitious security professional looking to progress in their career? If so, the Certified Incident Handler course is for you. The skills taught in the EC-Council's ECIH program are desired by cybersecurity professionals from around the world and highly respected by employers. What's more, we are proud to be one of the few authorised resellers of official EC-Council courses.

This specialist-level course is ideal for mid-level to high-level cybersecurity professionals. You will learn the fundamental skills to handle and respond to the computer security incidents in an information system. Additionally, the ECIH has a structured approach for performing the incident handling and response (IH&R) process. The IH&R includes stages like incident handling and response preparation, incident validation and prioritisation, incident escalation and notification, forensic evidence gathering and analysis, incident containment, systems recovery and incident eradication. This systematic incident handling and response process creates awareness among incident responders in knowing how to respond to various types of security incidents.

This certification is held in high regard as finding vulnerabilities and ensuring that they are addressed appropriately can substantially strengthen the networks and systems of any organisation. Given the frequency with which businesses and individuals are attacked, this is not something to be taken lightly and prevention of such attacks are always better than trying to recover from one, as the damage that has been done can very often be irreparable.
