ETHICAL HACKER CERTIFICATION (CEH) WORTH IT OR NOT?
Yes, it will add value. How much value? Well, it depends on what type of job you are looking for. If you know little about the laws and tools related to hacking, it might be a good cert to start with a base of knowledge and grow up the ladder in the pathway of cyber security.
If you are going to be performing penetration tests as part of your consulting, I would recommend the OSCP (Offensive Security Certified Professional) by Offensive Security. It’s pretty cheap; you get the training course and lab access for about 1000 bucks.
If you want higher level information, and you can afford it (or your work pays for it), go with SANS and just remember that these are extremely expensive courses.
In the end, certification will almost always increase your value, and it’s up to you to decide THAT value. If you want to use answer banks, you are only paying for the certificate, otherwise, you can learn everything and truly increase its value.
