CEH - Certified Ethical Hacker

CEH is an abbreviation for Certified Ethical Hackers. These groups of professionals are IT experts who perform ethical hacking. Ethical hacking is the practice of hacking computers and building computer viruses for development purposes. A Certified Ethical Hacker has recognition from a private or a legal firm as being one of the best minds in the IT field.

The primary job of a CEH is to identify the most minute loopholes in a computer system and design a code to cover the gap or make it inaccessible to the public. A CEH can detect and target the weakness in the company's software and devise methods to help the company be risk-free.

A CEH essentially is a trusted hacker within the enterprise that is entrusted with keeping other hackers out of the system.

What is a CEH?

The position of a CEH is valued highly in IT-based software and application development companies. Not only do they receive a high amount of pay but also occupy some of the top positions in the enterprise. In fact, a CEH is capable enough of bringing down the entire server of the company. He/she is entrusted with the most important secrets of the company and has a higher security clearance than most of the other high-level employees.

The career prospects of a CEH are better than other mainstream coders and software engineers. The reason being, they are capable of not only coding a new basic application for the IT-based firm but are also capable of confidently editing the entire source code to remove potential bugs.

CEH Positions:
• Computer Forensics Analyst,
• Site Administrator,
• Security Administrator,
• IT Security Specialist,
• Homeland Security Specialist,
• Network Security Specialist,
• Cyber Security Specialist, etc.

Salary Range:

A CEH holds a crucial role in the company and is responsible for the well-functioning of an IT based company. For carrying out the responsibilities on his/her shoulder, he/she is often compensated in a very high pay package. A CEH is also entitled to receive computer and Internet usage perks from the company.

The salary of a CEH can range from 50,000$ a year as a fresher. And, after the experience of 2-5 years in the field, the salary can go well above 100,000$ a year. A very high-level expert usually does not work with one company at a time. Instead, he/she can take up offers from multi-million dollar companies for working with them and providing expert consultancy at millions of dollars per project.
