The EC-Council Certified Incident Handler project is intended to impart and build on the aptitude to handle and respond to the PC security incidents in an enterprise environment. The course outlines different standards and systems for distinguishing and reacting to present and potential PC security threats.
Secure organisations implement multiple levels of encryption – database encryption, VoIP encryption, mobile encryption, Wi-Fi encryption, email encryption, record encryption – server/desktop, system join encryption, web server encryption, among others. It is always advisable to use multi-layered security in order to ensure all loose ends are tied and well protected.
The latest cases of security breaches have had one thing in common – they all had either none or minimal encryption. It resulted in loss of millions of dollars along with shaken trust of customers. Add to it bad publicity that hurts brand value to the core. Some examples are – SONY PS3, RSA, iPhone, LinkedIn.
ECES certification acquaints candidates with advanced cryptography techniques, for example, Feistel Networks, DES, and AES, among others.
