EC-Council’s Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) is a natural evolution and extended value addition to its series of security related professional certifications. The LPT standardizes the knowledge base for penetration testing professionals by incorporating best practices followed by experienced experts in the field.
The objective of the LPT is to ensure that each professional licensed by EC-Council follows a strict code of ethics, is exposed to the best practices in the domain of penetration testing and aware of all the compliance requirements required by the industry.
Unlike a normal security certification, the LPT is a program which trains security professionals to analyze the security posture of a network exhaustively and recommend corrective measures authoritatively. EC-Council's license vouches for their professionalism and expertise thereby making these professionals more sought after by organizations and consulting firms globally.
