Before becoming a certified ethical hacker, you have to understand ethical hacking. Ethical hacking is a legal attempt to gain unauthorized access to a computer system,

including its applications or data.

Ethical hackers, sometimes known as "white hats," are security professionals who do security audits. They contribute towards an organization's security posture through their proactive activities. Ethical hacking is different from criminal hacking, and it requires prior consent from the company or owner of the IT asset.

The Cybersecurity course at Imarticus is your gateway to becoming a professional, ethical hacker.

Concept of Ethical Hacking

Ethical hacking is a promising and lucrative career field as companies with online transactions nowadays require an ethical hacker. However, the cyber security course at Imarticus will provide you with rigorous training, but before that, you have to understand the critical concept of ethical hacking.

  • Whatever legal assessment you do in this field should be backed with prior permission.
  • Understand the scope and limitation of the legal assessment.
  • Report all the vulnerabilities uncovered during the evaluation—advice on fixing these flaws.
  • Data is sensitive; therefore, ethical hackers may have to sign a non-disclosure agreement in addition to the terms and conditions imposed by the inspected organization.

Difference Between Ethical Hacking and Criminal Hacking

Ethical hackers put their skills to help the businesses entities to secure and improve their technology. They help these businesses to locate any flaws or loopholes that could lead to a security breach.

While conducting a cyber security check, if they discover vulnerabilities, then they report the same to the corporation. Simultaneously, they also offer guidance on how to fix problems. The ethical hacker often re-tests with the organization's permission to check that the vulnerabilities are entirely addressed and resolved.

Criminal hackers seek unlawful access to a resource (the more sensitive, the better) to profit or acquire personal recognition. These hackers deface websites or crash backend systems for pleasure, reputation damage, or financial gain. Whatever methods they employ and vulnerabilities they discover gets unnoticed as they are not concerned about the company's security posture.

Functions of an Ethical Hacker

Ethical hacking seeks to imitate an attacker when evaluating the security of an organization's IT asset(s). As a part of this process, they look for attack vectors against the target. The initial objective is to conduct reconnaissance and collect as much data as possible.

Once the ethical hacker gathers enough data, they use the same to seek flaws in the asset. They use both automated and manual testing to carry out this evaluation. Even the most advanced systems may be subject to complex countermeasure methods.

The job of an ethical hacker includes continuously uncovering the vulnerabilities and finding the chances of their exploitation by a criminal hacker. Through cyber security certifications, you will know all the aspects of ethical hacking.

In general, an ethical hacker discovers the following vulnerabilities:

  • Assaults by injection
  • Compromised authentication 
  • Mistakes in security
  • Components with known security flaws should not be used

The Cybersecurity program at Imarticus is perfect both for a novice and an expert. It will give you the best chances to enhance your knowledge and skills on the subject.
