Last month’s top 10 rankings went to Certified Ethical Hackers from Portugal, Singapore, Italy, the US, Turkey, Indonesia and Chile.
February 10, 2022, Tampa, FL: In January 2022, cybersecurity professionals around the world applied for a position on the EC-Council’s Global Ethical Hacking Leaderboard, a platform that recognizes the achievements of the best Certified Ethical Hackers (C|EHs). The January 2022 ranking shows a diverse presence of ethical hackers, with participants from Portugal and Singapore occupying the top three spots.
The EC-Council Global Ethical Hacking Leaderboard encourages the growth of the ethical hacking community by inviting outstanding C|EHs to demonstrate their skills and achieve a coveted top 10 ranking. To qualify for the Ethical Hacking Leaderboard, individuals must pass the C|EH Practical, a 6-hour proctored exam based on real-world threat scenarios. People who successfully complete the demanding C|EH internship receive the C|EH Master’s qualification.
Pedro Vieira, a safety engineer from Portugal, took first place in the rankings with a score of 86%. He says: “I learned a lot during the C|EH internship. While it’s not an easy certification, it took me a lot of time to get it. The course materials are excellent and the content is very well explained. I enjoyed the exercises in the laboratories.”
Ethical hacking is now a profession that offers extensive growth opportunities. Despite the significant demand for ethical hackers around the world due to the massive increase in cyber attacks, there is currently an insufficient supply of cybersecurity talent to meet the challenges of countering cybercrime. The C|EH program aims to fill this gap by providing cybersecurity professionals with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in real-world threat scenarios.
The C|EH is an industry-recognized qualification that prepares participants for a variety of promising career paths in cybersecurity, including security analyst, manual ethical hacker, vulnerability assessment analyst, and network security engineer. The ANSI-recognized program trains learners to assess an organization’s security posture in real-world scenarios.
