The EC-Council ECIH certification was created in partnership with cybersecurity professionals and experts in incident handling and response worldwide.
The ECIH certification focuses on implementing a structured approach to handling and responding to incidents. This process encompasses several stages, including preparing for incident handling and response, validating and prioritizing incidents, escalating and notifying relevant parties, gathering and analyzing forensic evidence, containing the incident, recovering systems, and eradicating the incident. By following this systematic process, incident responders gain awareness of how to effectively address various security incidents occurring in organizations today. The certification covers a range of cybersecurity incidents, such as malware, email security, network security, web application security, cloud security, and incidents related to insider threats.
