Course Objectives

Top

'Incident Handling and Response' is all about the speed at which your organisation can respond to an attack, and how effectively it responds. On average, it can take over 200 days before an attack is discovered and another 80 days before containment measures are made. And 76% of all organisations does not have an Incident Response plan...

The latest revision of EC-Council’s Certified Incident Handler (E|CIH) certified program has been designed and developed in collaboration with cybersecurity and incident handling/response practitioners across the globe.

The ECIH program focuses on a structured approach to the incident handling and response (IH&R) process. This IH&R process includes stages such as; incident handling and response preparation, incident validation and prioritization, incident escalation and notification, forensic evidence gathering and analysis, incident containment, systems recovery, and incident eradication. This systematic incident handling and response process creates awareness among the incident responders in knowing how to respond to various types of security incidents happening in organisations today.The types of cybersecurity incidents covered include malware incidents, email security incidents, network security incidents, web application security incidents, cloud security incidents, and insider threat-related incidents.

It is a comprehensive specialist level program, that imparts knowledge and skills on how organisations can effectively handle post breach consequences by reducing the impact of the incident, both financially and reputationally. The learning objectives are emphasised through practical learning with 40% of this course covering hands-on experience of the latest incident handling and response tools, techniques, methodologies, frameworks, etc.

The E|CIH lab environment consists of the latest and patched operating systems including Windows 10, Windows Server 2016, Ubuntu Linux, and OSSIM for performing labs.

Students will have access to over 50 labs, 800 tools, and 4 OSs! as well as a large array of templates, check lists, and cheat sheets.

The ECIH Program is 100% Compliant with the NICE 2.0 Framework AND CREST Framework.

  • Understand the key issues plaguing the information security world
