Penetration Testers possess the ability to work in a unique security role that analyzes known vulnerabilities in a network or system in order to provide better defense mechanisms. This process of securing information posture and correcting problems in the security plan is a very common one in organizations and government agencies, most of which are constantly on the search for LPTs who have a proven competency record in this field.
By earning the LPT (EC-Council Licensed Penetration Tester) certification, you can advance your career to the highest level possible. The skills and knowledge included in it are an extension of those validated by the CEH and ECSA certifications. Testers will serve as authoritative figures that will use research and analysis to implement and administer corrective measures in the face of security shortcomings.
Unique from all other EC-Council certifications, this one does not require any new exam to be passed. Instead, participants must earn the CEH and ECSA certifications, have a valid ECE account, fill out and submit the LPT Application/Recommendation form, and make the required license fee payment. More specific information can be found on the EC-Council website. Becoming certified as a Licensed Penetration Tester can open your career to new opportunities as a security professional.
