EC Council Training Overview
The EC-Council certification program focuses on vendor-neutral security certifications, covering topics such as ethical hacking, penetration testing, encryption and forensics, plus incident handling and response. If you are just starting in the field of computer security and wish to add certifications to your portfolio, you should start with the entry-level EC-Council Certified Secure Computer User (CSCU) certification, and then move on to the Certified Security Specialist (ECSS) credential.
If your ultimate goal is ethical hacking, the next step is to acquire the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH). EC-Council considers the CEH a core certification to prepare you to advance to more advanced or specialized credentials, but it is not a formal prerequisite. For penetration testing, a candidate must achieve the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) and finally the Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) certifications.
