Ethical Hacking

The rise of IT Security and ethical hackers is due to technology advances and the growing number of threats in the computer world. In the wake of September 11, terrorist attack, when ethical hacking as a concept was put forward by EC Council, it received mixed responses. “Ethical Hacking” is an oxymoron and both, people and media were not ready to accept this term. EC Council explained it as a bodyguard to the computer systems. An ethical hacker is someone who follows ethical principles to protect information and systems from the unethical hackers. Recently, many organizations have faced cyber-attacks leading to the growing need of having professional ethical hackers who can safeguard their networks.

 

Organizations under constant Cyber-Attack

Organizations like Banks, NBFC, dealing with public, Government, ‘B to B’ and ‘B to C’ are major targets therefore they always remain under cyber-threats. “Defending against cyber-attacks account for a significant portion of the $25 billion banks worldwide spend annually on security technology” (Source). Besides banks, other organizations small, medium or large are constantly under cyber-attacks. ‘Adobe Systems last year, faced a data hack of 2.9 million customers’ (Source). Security thus has become a mainstream requirement in today’s world.

 

To stop a hacker, one needs to think like one and this is what ethical hacking is all about. Ethical hackers also perform security tasks like hackers; however it is to protect the computers and networks of an organization. They have the permission to hack organization’s network in order to perform tests that keep it safe from illegal hacking. Ethical hackers help in improving the security of systems in organizations.
