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.
