EC-Council launches CEHv7 Core Concepts on August 17th, an addendum written by real-world penetration testers (pen testers) in order to support CEHv7 students and information security professionals to better understand and apply the subject matter covered in the CEHv7 official curriculum.

Core Concepts adds a layer of depth to the already robust CEHv7 course. Based on the perspective of real-world pen-testers, Core Concepts further develops a detailed understanding of the ideas in CEHv7.

To produce Core Concepts, EC-Council appointed a group of highly regarded pen testers with real-world experience to ensure that the real-life applications of CEH are thoroughly covered, beyond what is presented in the courseware or covered by the instructor in class.

According to Jay Bavisi, EC-Council's CEO, "While the CEH is a product of hundreds of subject matter experts' contributions, we felt compelled to appoint a couple of the subject matter experts to further elaborate key ethical hacking skills in their own words. We are convinced that this will enrich the entire learning experience of the EC-Council CEH program."

Becoming an Ethical Hacker
Ethical hacking is where a person hacks to find weaknesses in a system and then usually patches them. Hacking is simply exploring a computer's designed features, and learning how to exploit or take advantage of those features. They are called as the white hat people who use their knowledge in a constructive manner to help organizations, companies, government, etc. to secure documents and secret information on the internet. An ethical hacker hacks with legal permission to strengthen systems and makes them penetration proof unlike the cracker who purposely indulges in cyber crime.

To test a security system, ethical hackers use the same methods as criminal hackers, but instead of taking advantage of them, they work against them and report problems to their owners. The ethical hacking process is also known as intrusion testing or penetration testing or red teaming. Hacking is not legal in India but this particular way can segregate good hacking from the bad one easily after being certified as a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH).

The Importance Of Ethical Hacking
Testing whether a company's security settings are in fact secure. One of the biggest roles of a professional doing ethical hacking is to test whether the company's security settings can still be breached. To do so, he or she will need to try to actually hack the system to check for any weaknesses in the security. He or she will try just about everything that a malicious hacker may attempt to do. This is because an actual hacker will have a no-holds-barred approach when attempting to hack a system, which is why an ethical hacker should also try to throw everything he or she has to see if he or she can penetrate the security system. Should he or she find any weaknesses in the security, it is his or her job to make a report about these findings so that the company will be able to beef up its security settings.

To protect the sensitive information in the company's database. A company's database will usually not just contain information about the company itself, but also data about its clients and employees. As such, should malicious hackers be able to breach the system, they could very well get their hands on information involving a lot of people in one go. An ethical hacking team does not just check to see if a company's database is secure. If necessary, these hackers will also make modifications to the system to add to its security.

To protect the database itself. Malicious hackers may not just steal the information in your system. To add insult to injury, they can also send viruses into your system that could very well corrupt it and wipe out everything in your database. This means the company losing a lot of very important information. By boosting the security of the database, an ethical hacking team will be able to lessen the possibilities of your network suffering from crashes or virus problems.

To keep the system continually up to date. Just because a company's security system is updated now does not mean that it will be even just a few days from now. Having an ethical hacking team will mean that your security settings are continually updated, which means that there is no chance for any breach to occur at any time.

To train the IT team about proper Internet security. In the event that a company does not want to have an in-house ethical hacking team, it can still hire consultants who will be able to train the organization's IT department on what they need to do in order to increase system security. That way, even if they don't have an in-house team, their IT department will at least be able to boost security, as well as what needs to be done in case of a breach.
