Why is CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker) important?

CEH is a widely recognised ethical hacking qualification that was introduced in 2003. It is regularly updated, and the latest version (CEH v12) covers Parrot OS, enhanced Cloud security, IoT threats, operational technology attacks and fileless malware.

Awarded by the EC-Council, CEH is globally recognised as a foundation qualification for anyone who wishes to develop a career as a penetration tester, SOC team member or cyber security analyst.

CEH also provides an essential up-to-date understanding of cyber threats, vulnerabilities and countermeasures for every technical cyber security professional.

CEH is accredited by the NCSC Certified Training scheme as a Courseware-level qualification that supports the career and skills development of UK cyber security professionals.

The average salary for UK jobs requiring CEH certification in 2023 is £70,000 per annum. itjobswatch.co.uk
