What is the market of CEH(Certified Ethical Hacker) ?

CEH(Certified Ethical Hacker) is an International recognized certification by EC-Council for Information Security Professionals.CEH is a good option for entry level security professionals but it is no more helpful to get a job. It  is just an eligibility criteria of most of the companies to have CEH certification with them to fulfill companies policy.
What is the market of CEH(Certified Ethical Hacker) ?

All depends on your knowledge ,how much strong is  your technical skills.The thing is recruiter would want to see how much you really know because there are institutions which can help you achieve certifications easily.you will be certified but you won't really know anything.
From the survey, India needs about 5 lakhs CEH in coming years.No doubt there will be a huge requirements of CEH professionals in Information  Security domain.So finally i can say that it is x-factor to have CEH with you but it is useful just to fulfill the eligibility criteria for a job , rest depends on your knowledge.
No doubt that you can get a handsome package in Ethical Hacking as compare to another domain but don't think that if you have CEH certification then you can get a handsome package.You need to have good understanding of all the modules of CEH and knowledge of current corporate standard like ISO/IAM/VAPT etc.

You can check the course content and details description about latest version of CEH certification i.e. CEH v9 from the official website of EC-Council http://www.eccouncil.org/

How to save your important data if someone hacked your gmail account ?

Gmail is a frequently used and most popular Email service by Google.Most of the people use Gmail for their email service.Gmail is itself very secure but sometime gmail accounts get hacked because the lack of awareness of user.
How to save your important data if someone hacked your gmail account ?

If you think there is any software in world to hack a service like Gmail then you are completely wrong because there is no software in world by which any hacker can hack Gmail. If someone claims to have software and tell to download them then it is completely spam and may have any trojans/backdoors attached with it. So these types of services only get hacked if user is not aware about the email attacks and security services provided by Gmail.
If you think or have doubt that some hacked your account then you can check it by seeing your account details(option provided by Gmail). For that go to your Gmail account and "at the bottom right" just below Last account activity click on "details" and you will get a chart of web sessions about your gmail login.

Here you can see
Access Type, Location (IP address) and Date/Time
if you find something suspicious then you should report it to near cyber crime cell about this incident.

So the best security option is provided by Gmail is 2-Step Verification . Always enable 2 step verification in gmail account. If you have enabled this option then no one can use your sensitive data in the world even they have your gmail Username/Password. But only thing to remember that don't share your mobile phone with anyone which you are using for 2 step verification.
Another suggestion to secure your email is that make your Email-id dead means don't share this email to third party.Don't share this email with anyone where it is not much more important .Keep this email for official purpose only so if you don't share it with unknown resources then no one will be aware about your email id and it will be out of from hackers/attackers.
