If you want to play attack and become one of those qualified professionals that companies are looking for, train in Ethical Hacking and you will learn to analyze the vulnerabilities of a company through pen-testing.
In this post we talk about the key concepts of ethical hacking, the current context of the demand for really prepared profiles in this matter and how you can be one of them.
Organizations need ethical hackers
The main objective of cybersecurity is to protect the systems, networks and software of individuals and corporations from digital attacks that could compromise the integrity of any entity.
The last Global Information Security Study conducted by the World Center for Cyber Security and Education ensures that in the past 2020, 9 out of 10 companies suffered a computer attack and that in 2022 there will be a shortage of 1.8M cybersecurity workers in the world.
Given these data, the need to have qualified cybersecurity professionals is, in addition to a legal requirement (GDPR), an obligation for those companies that want to keep their data safe.
Now, how can we guarantee that our organization is protected against possible hacker attacks? The solution is to have the services of a professional equipped with the skills of a computer hacker but who puts his knowledge and skills at the service of those companies that want to test their security systems to detect possible failures and correct them before suffering an attack; this profile is known within the world of cybersecurity as ethical hacker.
What does an Ethical Hacker do?
In this video about official course Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) by EC-Council that we impart from PUE you will understand quickly and in a few minutes what does an ethical hacker do and what is the primary objective of this job profile within the world of cybersecurity.
An ethical hacker is going to test the security system of an organization by carrying out a controlled attack on said system, obviously with the authorization of the organization itself. This method is known as Pen-Testing.
Once this professional has finished his intrusive work, he will collect the information obtained from the attack carried out and will develop a document called Vulnerability scan, to see in which points of the security system there are faults or possible improvements, and it will be sent to the company that has contracted their services.
Pen-Testing and Vulnerability Analysis are the two key concepts of ethical hacking collected in what we know as VAPT (Vulnerability Assessment Penetration Testing).
