What is an Incident Handler?

These incidents within a structured organization are normally dealt with by a either an Incident Response Team (IRT), or an Incident Management Team (IMT). These teams are often either designated beforehand, or during the event and are placed in control of the organization while the incident is dealt with, in order to retain business processes.

|ECIH Exam Details|
In order to maintain the high integrity of our certifications exams, EC-Council Exams are provided in multiple forms (I.e. different question banks). Each form is carefully analyzed through beta testing with an appropriate sample group under the purview of a committee of subject matter experts that ensure that each of our exams not only have academic rigor but also have “real world” applicability. We also have a process to determine the difficulty rating of each question . The individual rating then contributes to an overall “Cut Score” for each exam form. To ensure each form has equal assessment standards, cut scores are set on a “per exam form” basis. Depending on which exam form is challenged, cut scores can range from 60% to 85%.
