Why study this course

The EC-Council Certified Incident Handler program is designed to provide the fundamental skills to handle and respond to the computer security incidents in an information system. The course addresses various underlying principles and techniques for detecting and responding to current and emerging computer security threats. Students will learn how to handle various types of incidents, risk assessment methodologies and various laws and policies related to incident handling.

Professionals interested in pursuing incident handling and response as a career require comprehensive training that not only imparts concepts but also allows them to experience real-scenarios. The E|CIH program includes hands-on learning delivered through labs within the training program. True employability after earning a certification can only be achieved when the core of the curricula maps to and is compliant with government and industry-published incident and response frameworks.

E|CIH is a method-driven program that uses a holistic approach to cover vast concepts concerning organisational incident handling and response from preparing and planning the incident handling response process to recovering organisational assets after a security incident. These concepts are essential for handling and responding to security incidents to protect organisations from future threats or attacks.
