Frequently asked questions

Why is getting certified an important part of an ethical hacking career?

The EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification and the CompTIA PenTest+ certification demonstrate to employers you have an in-depth knowledge of ethical hacking and penetration testing. They are industry-recognized certifications that verify the training required to identify system weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

How much programming experience is typically required?

Programming experience isn't a requirement, but we recommend you have a solid understanding of at least one programming language, a familiarity with networking concepts like TCP/IP Protocol and experience using Linux and/or Unix.

How has the ethical hacking industry grown in recent years? Has the need for ethical hacking skills changed in the last five or ten years?

The ethical hacking industry has grown tremendously over the past decade and shows no signs of slowing down. The growing popularity of cloud computing and IoT devices has introduced a myriad of new vulnerabilities, further increasing the need for ethical hackers and pentesters.

How difficult is it to find security flaws in companies with significant resources? Do hackers still get paid if they fail to find security flaws?

Your experience will vary by company, but security flaws are surprisingly common in the real world. If your penetration test fails to identify any security vulnerabilities, you will still be paid for your time and services.
