EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) complements the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification by exploring the analytical phase of ethical hacking. While CEH exposes the learner to hacking tools and technologies, ECSA takes it a step further by exploring how to analyze the outcome from these tools and technologies. Through groundbreaking penetration testing methods and techniques, ECSA class helps students perform the intensive assessments required to effectively identify and mitigate risks to the security of the infrastructure.

This makes ECSA a relevant milestone towards achieving EC-Council’s Licensed Penetration Tester, which also ingrains the learner in the business aspect of penetration testing. The Licensed Penetration Tester standardizes the knowledge base for penetration testing professionals by incorporating the best practices followed by experienced experts in the field.

The objective of EC-Council Certified Security Analyst is to add value to experienced security professionals by helping them analyze the outcomes of their tests. ECSA leads the learner into the advanced stages of ethical hacking.
