What is Ethical Hacking?

13.6.2016 Sectec

Some call them white hat hackers, others use the term legal hackers, and still others refer to them as pentesters.

All of them mean the same thing: A hacker that helps organizations uncover security issues with the goal of preventing those security flaws from being exploited. The idea behind ethical hacking is to pay the ‘good guys’ to find any holes the ‘bad guys’ would, before they can get to them.

Ethical hackers use penetration testing and other, mostly offensive, techniques to probe an organization’s networks, systems and applications. In essence, ethical hackers use the same techniques, tools, and methods that malicious hackers use to find real vulnerabilities – only in this case, they report them back to the organization for remediation…and a paycheck.
