CEH starts here

11 Jan 2019 - mrtn

one of my goals for 2019 is to, for the lack of a better word, formalize my education in the information security space. to do that, i decided to obtain the CEH, also known as the Certified Ethical Hacker certification.

i decided to start with that certificate, because it covers a lot of ground and is well known in the industry. i might not be the certificate that offers you the highest infosec street cred - but i don’t care about that. i do this for me, because i want to learn.


to get a grip on the materials required, i’m taking the prep course on linuxacademy.


i want to get certified some time in 2019. according to my estimation (and course schedule on the prep course) i should be able to finish the prep course until end of march - and as soon as i feel comfortable enough, i’ll schedule the exam.
