What is Ethical Hacking?

Ethical hackers (also known as white hat hackers) are responsible for examining internal servers and systems to discover any possible vulnerabilities to external cyber attacks. Ethical hackers know how to find and exploit vulnerabilities and weaknesses in various systems—just like a malicious hacker (or a black hat hacker).  They actually both use the same skills; however, an ethical hacker uses those skills in a lawful manner to try and find vulnerabilities and fix them, before the bad guys can get there and try to break in. Common job functions include conducting “pentests” (purposeful penetration tests to discover security weaknesses in a system) by using software applications such as Metasploit and BackBox Linux.

If the idea of hacking as a career excites you, you’ll benefit greatly from completing the Free Penetration Testing & Ethical Hacking training here on Cybrary. You’ll learn how to exploit networks in the manner of an attacker, in order to find out how to protect the system from them.
