EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) – Live Online

October 6 @ 8:00 am - October 9 @ 5:00 pm EDT


EC-Council’s Penetration Testing Certification Training Course – ECSA version 9 takes the skills taught in our Certified Ethical Hacker course to the next level by offering cyber security professionals a pen test methodology deployed through its hand-on component; EC-Council’s online cyber range.

Since CEH came on the market like a whirl wind, over 100,000 IT Security professionals have become Certified Ethical Hackers. Today the term “ethical hacker” has become a baseline, description for an IT Security professional. EC-Council brought you that term.

EC-Council, Certification, CEH, ECSA, IT Security Track, Security Assessment, Expoiting Vulnerabilities.

The ECSA penetration tester course was designed by professionals to teach ethical hackers how to apply their hacking skills (Not limited to but including The Five Phases of Ethical Hacking) in a pen test scenario. The scenarios cover the testing of modern infrastructures, operating systems and application environments while teaching the students how to document and write a penetration testing report.

Each candidate will be required to write and submit a penetration test report which they will develop throughout the course and which will be based on the labs in the course delivered via EC-Council’s iLabs cyber range platform. Only candidates who can successfully complete the challenges and pass the report writing portion of the course will be allowed to take the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) certification exam.

DoD Red Team that achieved a 100% success
rate at compromising systems and networks
for six straight years. He has conducted over
500 security assessments across the globe.
His expertise is in finding weaknesses and
determining ways clients can mitigate or limit the
impact of these weaknesses.
He spent 22 years in the U.S. Navy. He has worked as both software
and systems engineer on a variety of Department of Defense projects
and early on was chosen as a member of the project to bring Internet
access to ships at sea. Following this highly successful project he
was selected to head the team that built a Network Operations and
Security Center (NOSC) that provided services to the commands

the NOSC.

Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) Master

To earn the prestigious EC-Council LPT (Master) Credential, you must successfully pass our most challenging practical exam available. The LPT (Master) practical exam is the capstone to EC-Council’s entire information security track; from the Certified Ethical Hacker Program (CEH) to theEC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) Program. It all culminates with the ultimate test of your career as a penetration tester – the Licensed Penetration Tester practical exam.

You will need to demonstrate a mastery of the skills required to conduct a full black box penetration test of a network provided to you by EC-Council on our cyber range, iLabs. You will follow the entire process taught to you through Ethical Hacking and Security Assessment, taking you from reconnaissance, scanning, enumeration, gaining access, maintaining access, then exploiting vulnerabilities that you will have to seek out in a network that only a true professional will be able to break. EC-Council will provide the entire cyber-range through its cloud based cyber range, iLabs. All tool-sets are provided to you – you bring the skill.

EC-Council, Certification, CEH, ECSA, IT Security Track, Security Assessment, Exploiting Vulnerabilities “Many have described report writing as one of least preferred, yet arguably one of the most critical parts of any penetration testing engagement.” To successfully pass the LPT (Master) practical, you must fully document your penetration test in a complete, professional penetration test report. This report will follow formats learned in the ECSA program, following industry acceptable, penetration testing and reporting procedures used by only the top professionals in the industry.

This report will be reviewed and scored based on a complex rubric by other penetration testing professionals dedicating to upholding the value of EC-Council’s LPT (Master) Credential, and enhancing the professionalization of cyber security as a field penetration tester.
