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.

The International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) is a member-based organization that certifies individuals in various information security and e-business skills. EC-Council has been certified by American National Standards Institute to meet its ANSI 17024 standard. It is the owner and creator of the world famous Certified Ethical Hacker(CEH), Computer Hacking Forensics Investigator (CHFI) and EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA)/License Penetration Tester (LPT) programs, and as well as many others programs, that are offered in over 92 countries through a training network of more than 500 training partners globally.
They researched the web for “Information Security” programs that would be able to provide Information Security professionals with the necessary tools and education that will help them avert a cyber war, should the need ever arise.
The results returned from the research were disappointing and that motivated them to form the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants, known as the EC-Council.
They soon gained the support of subject matter experts from all over the world that eventually led to the creation of various standards and certifications both in the electronic commerce and information security space.
