How important is a CEH and CHFI certifications for an IT Organization?

Cyber-attacks are one of the greatest threat to IT organizations as they can bring down a company’s reputation in no time. With growing sophistication in technology, the cyber threats are also proliferating and becoming very difficult to track down and quarantine. The International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) a certification body supported by many organizations introduced Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) and Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator certifications.

Who is a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)?


CEH is the first and one of the best certification to provide the methods and techniques to penetrate the computer systems. This certification changed the way the IT organizations handled the cyber-attacks. The certified professionals think and act in the hacker’s perspective, which is the main reason to find the loopholes in the organization’s network. After finding the vulnerabilities, the professionals will work towards securing the computer networks.


Who is a Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator (CHFI)?


CHFI on the other hand not only identifies, tracks the cyber-criminals, but also prosecutes them for this illegal act. Based on the available data, the forensic investigator collects evidence against the security breach and reports the criminal activity. Then conducts the audit to save guard the system from future attacks.


Prerequisite to take up the CEH and CHFI certification:


  • For the CEH certification, the candidate is required to possess two years of working experience in the Information Security department.
  • There is no prerequisites to take up the CHFI certification. However, it is recommended to take up CEH certification before CHFI and in this case it is not mandatory to clear the CEH exam.
