EC-Council Cyber Certification Overview

EC-Council Certification For The Cyber Security Professional

EC-Council is one of the leading providers of cybersecurity certifications with its flagship Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)  recognised worldwide. The US Department of Defense as well as the National Security Agency and Pentagon have approved several EC-Council certifications for use in works categories defined for cybersecurity roles.

The EC-Council certifications have a strong technical focus and cover a wide range of cybersecurity topics in-depth providing successful candidates with a certification that is accepted worldwide. Most of their certifications consist of a practical as well as a multiple-choice exam.

At Jumping Bean we offer the following EC-Council training courses.

Training Course Formats

We offer our training courses in a range of formats to suit the needs of our students and customers:

  • Short Course: This takes the form of full-day, instructor-led, training sessions. It is best suited for corporates or those who already have experience in cybersecurity but wish to take a refresher course before sitting the exam.
  • Virtual Instructor Lead Course: This is run either online full time, as above, or part-time. The part-time training is held twice a week in the evenings, online from 6:30 - 7:30.  This is ideal for students who cannot attend full-day classes or for students who wish to work through the material between lectures to consolidate their understanding.
  • Online, Mentor lead training: This takes the form of self-paced training with access to a mentor via mail, web chat, or video call should a student require assistance to work through some key concepts or material.

What-ever your constraints we will have a format to accommodate you!


Specialist Certifications CND & CHFI

Before attempting the CEH course one should have a solid background in computing concepts and networking. The Certified Network Defender (CND) certification is one way to obtain the background necessary to successfully complete CEH.

The CHFI Certified Hacking Forensic Investigator certification is a specialisation course for those students who wish to investigate cybersecurity incidents. This may be from external or internal actors and may be criminal, civil or administrative investigations.

Certified Network Defender (CND)

CND is aimed at skilling students up in detecting and preventing system compromise and in configuring system defenses to maintain system integrity, confidentiality, and availability.

CND  trains students to adopt a process of continuous improvement in system defenses with respect to detecting and preventing cyber-attacks.

CND is mapped to the cybersecurity education framework and work role task analysis developed by the National Initiative of Cybersecurity Education (NICE).

In addition, the certification has been approved by the Department of Defense (DoD) for the work category roles for system and network administrators.

Our training course covers the latest version of the certification. The previous version of the course, while it is still valid, is available on request.

Course Objectives:

  • Network Attacks and Defense Strategies
  • Administrative Network Security
  • Technical Network Security
  • Network Perimeter Security

Certified Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI)

CHFI trains students on how to carry out digital investigations to determine how a machine was compromised, what was compromised, who the threat actor was, and their objectives. Students will learn how to extract evidence of the attack for use in internal audits or civil or criminal cases. Investigations can cover acts of theft of trade secrets, theft of or destruction of intellectual property, fraud, and industrial espionage. Computer forensics is simply the application of computer investigation and analysis techniques in the interests of determining potential legal evidence.

Our training course always covers the latest version of the certification. The previous version of the course, while it is still valid, is available on request.
