Re: CEH Course - Your thoughts?



Although I took the CEH training, I would argue that the CISSP is the way to go.
The SANS might be a show stopper for a small training budget...
Just my 2 cents.
Kind regards,

If you dont have problem with budget, go for SANS training (GCIH or GPen)
instead of CEH.

Subject: CEH Course - Your thoughts?

I will be rounding up my first year as a security analyst soon and my
company has offered to send me to a CEH course taught by Dan Garfield
and it is held by IT Training Solutions. This is the new v6 course.

I feel very comfortable with locating vulnerabilities on the network
and exploitation methodologies. I do penetration testing on my job,
but it is a very small part of my daily activities. I see many tools
listed in the description that I just haven't had the time to go hands
on with.... and some I use extensively.

I would like to ask anyone who has attended one of these 5 day courses
to reply with their experiences. I am looking for a lab based
environment to experiment with tools I haven't had the opportunity to
use. I am already ingrained with CIA, AAA & management aspects of
infosec as well as the 'anatomy of an attack.' I want to get to the
nitty gritty and not have the same vague overview I get all the time.
I really want to spend a solid week focusing on improving my toolkit.

Do you feel like this course would be beneficial to me or should I
hold off for something else. (SANS, Foundstone, etc)
