How to become an Ethical Hacker (without breaking your bank in the process!)

To beat a hacker, you need to think like one!” - EC Council

Certified Ethical Hacker or CEH is one of the hottest picks by most information security pros. The CEH certification provided by EC Council is the first certification to bring the so-called dark side of IT into the limelight. The course focuses on the tools and techniques on how hackers find and exploit vulnerabilities. CEH is often featured amongst the top 5 Cybersecurity Certifications to opt for in various 3rd party publications and is one of the most recommended certs by industry practictioners.

The courseware presented in the CEH is contributed by hundreds of Subject Matter Experts and authors who have spent thousands of man hours researching about the latest trends, tools, and techniques used by the underground community, making it the most desired and valued certification. Learning these would allow you to secure your networks, applications, and other assets better. This is evident from the massive demand of this certification by employers across North America.

Ready to get certified? Here is what you should be up for.

The CEH training and examination fee costs roughly in the range of around US $2500 - $3800 (North America). This may become an expensive proposition, particularly if you’re looking to cover it as an out-of-pocket expense. To help get around this problem, Greycampus, an official EC-Council Accredited Training Center, has introduced a 3-month payment plan.

This payment plan is aimed at breaking down the total cost of the training and certification into more manageable, byte-sized payments. What’s more, this plan does not involve a third party lending agency, so you’d not really need to face credit check hassles while going ahead with this plan. Just like every other payment plan though, it will require you to pay an extra $76 as an additional processing fee.

At the moment this plan is available only for Greycampus’ CEH Live Online training variant, which currently retails at $1799 (US & Canada) after discounts including training, official courseware, Ilabs access and EC-Council Exam voucher. Based on the success of this initiative, Greycampus plans to roll out similar payment plans for other training delivery modes, and for other courses in its portfolio.

As per Joe Davis, Business Manager - GreyCampus, this payment option will enable as many people as possible to get certified as Cybersecurity professionals in North America while being easy on their pocket.

Commenting on the Payment Plan, Danish Arshad, Executive Director EC-Council says “ Greycampus initative levels the playing field for EVERYONE to attain one of the most sought out certification in the industry and pursue the hottest career in North America right now. This payment plan will solve the budget problem of the masses and gives access to the highest quality skills to be an Ethical Hacker”
