Certified Security Analyst v10 (ECSA)

Certified Security Analyst

You are an ethical hacker. Probably a Certified Ethical Hacker. You dream about enumeration and you can scan networks in your sleep. You have sufficient knowledge, an arsenal of hacking tools and are also proficient in writing custom hacking code. But is that enough?

Can you become an industry accepted security professional? Will organizations hire you to help them protect their systems? Do you have any knowledge in applying a suitable methodology to conduct a penetration test for an enterprise client?


The ECSA penetration testing course provides you with real world hands-on penetration testing experience. This globally accepted hacking and penetration testing class covers the testing of modern infrastructures, operating systems and application environments while teaching students how to document and write a penetration testing report.

The ECSA pentest program takes the tools and techniques you learned in the Certified Ethical Hacker course (CEH), further enhancing your ability and fully exploiting your knowledge by teaching you how to apply the skills learned in the CEH by utilizing EC-Council’s published penetration testing methodology. It focuses on pentesting methodology with an emphasis on hands-on learning.
