Thought you guys might find this interesting. I was tempted to rip them to shreds on their linkedin, but I think we can have reasoned discussion here.

Ready? and... GO!

    I think this is coming from a SANS vs CEH I saw on the SANS Website. They were marked negative on all .

    I think he's referring to the ECC page you posted. I don't see anything on sans.org. I'll have a look in the mailing lists for discussions about it. The claims in the ECC advert are ridiciulous, so I'm sure we already know what the SANS/GIAC community thinks about it.

    I believe ECC is just getting back at SANS, to be honest with you. Check this out: https://www.sans.org/course/network-penetration-testing-ethical-hacking and expand 'Why take this course?'. It's been there for as long as I can remember, if memory does not fail me.

    I'd never take CEH personally, but I can clearly see what they did there.

    I stopped after reading "The learning objectives of the program aligns with information security education standards such as the DoD 8570, CNSS and NICE framework"

    This is just ECC trolling, the Infosec community would agree CEH is not even in the same league as lot of SANS certs. I'm not knocking CEH, it has it's place(intro cert) but just isn't on the same level as SAN certs.

    Oh yes, under the Why Take This Course? link. I wonder what version of the CEH was current that comparison was made. CEHv5 maybe? SANS should update it for CEHv8.

    I was talking about the above link .

    I too believe that SANS should update it or remove. Just because CEH does it. SANS does not have to do it.

    well, the SANS version is certainly more accurate than the ECC version.
  • chanakyajupudichanakyajupudi Posts: 712Member
    Yes. But SANS should not point them out in particular. Maybe say SANS vs Other Starting Level Security Training.

    But this this marketing sniping is a direct comparison between the ECC's CEH course and SANS' pen test course for the GIAC GPEN cert.

    There is no comparison - But we know this already. Interesting to see the two sides exchanging jabs, though.
