A Look at CEH: Is It For You?


A Look at CEH: Is It For You?

The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification is widely regarded as the gold standard in offensive security circles. There are a few reasons for that. The CEH is a rigorous exam that validates the security best practices you’ll learn in the first few years as a security professional. However, the CEH is not for everyone. 

This week, we covered who should take the CEH, how much it will cost (really), and also a look at the more practical alternative, OSCP.

CEH vs. OSCP: Which is Better?

The CEH is not a very technical exam. The OSCP is a notoriously technical exam. But that doesn’t mean one is better than the other. We conclude they’re complementary rather than competing.

How Much Does the CEH Exam (Really) Cost

CEH isn’t cheap. The CEH exam costs $1,199. Even applying to take the exam costs $100. And that doesn’t even include the training.

How to Take the CEH Without Official Training

Applying for the CEH exam without taking official training requires a little more paperwork, a few more hoops, and a little more time, but it’s a good option for experienced professionals.
