Introducing the EC-Council Essentials Series
The EC-Council Essentials Series fills a much-needed gap between Fundamental, end-user security and more intermediate level (E.g. Core) network defense concepts commonly seen in the Certified Network Defender (CND) program. For years, EC-Council has been recommending CND to individuals interested in initially taking Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) to gain a thorough understanding of tactical cyber defense prior to hacking and exploiting. NDE, EHE, and DFE offer a steady pathway to CND and ultimately CEH.
