Course Description

This certification preparation program for the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst/Licensed Penetration Tester program consists of two components i.e. EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) training and Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) performance-based skill assessment. The EC–Council Security Analyst (ECSA) program is a comprehensive, standards-based, methodology intensive training program which teaches information security professionals to conduct real life penetration tests by utilizing EC-Council’s published penetration testing methodology. The EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) program teaches various penetration testing and security auditing methodologies. Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) program teaches the report writing skills of the professional pen tester. The LPT program was also designed to evaluate the student’s capabilities of performing penetration tests in real-time scenarios on an active cyber range. The ECSA/LPT program awards two certificates to successful candidates. The ECSA certificate is provided on successfully passing the online ECSA exam and LPT credentials are provided upon meeting the requirements stated in LPT application form
