With an increase in the use of technology globally, several organizations are at risk of losing their data to cyber-attacks. To tackle these malicious hackers, Cybersecurity and Ethical Hacking step in. Both Cybersecurity and Ethical Hacking serve the same purpose, which is protecting online data and preventing networks from being hacked.

Cybersecurity is a broader field while Ethical Hacking is just one part of it. Many students take up Ethical hacking and Cybersecurity courses to make a career in the field. An individual needs to have good knowledge about IT to pursue this course. There are several Cybersecurity courses online

Cybersecurity protects systems connected to the internet and prevents unauthorized access to networks and data stored online. Cybersecurity includes different security techniques such as ethical hacking, data forensics, and data security. Cybersecurity can be broken down into: 

  • Network Security
  • Application Security
  • Mobile Security
  • Cloud Security
  • Data Security
  • Information Security
  • Endpoint Security
  • Identity Management

Cyber threats are targeting organizations globally. Organizations need to increase their security level to prevent data theft and network hacking. 

Cybersecurity Expert Role

A Cybersecurity expert needs to be well-versed with all Cybersecurity skills and ensure that the user's data is secure from theft. A Cybersecurity expert needs to have in-depth knowledge of all types of Cybersecurity tools, concepts, and techniques to tackle challenges such as ransomware or malware. 

Responsibilities of a Cybersecurity expert include-

  • Strengthening the network security system of the organization
  • Implementing the latest technology and techniques to improve security
  • Look for vulnerabilities and loopholes
  • Protecting the organization's data and network from unauthorized access
  • Supervising and guiding the security team 

Ethical Hacking and Role of an Ethical Hacker

An Ethical Hacker hacks into the organization's system with prior permission to check for susceptibilities in the security system. Ethical Hackers later present a report to the organization about the route taken to hack into the system. An Ethical hacker is responsible for: 

  • Hacking into the organization’s system legally and finding the weak links
  • Enhancing the security system by providing helpful solutions
  • Alerting the organization about a cyber attack
  • Testing the security system of the organization and evaluating its performance

Cybersecurity and Ethical hacking deal with the safety and security of systems and networks. Cybersecurity is branched out and has different techniques to increase security while Ethical hacking is more of a subset. Ultimately both focus on protecting data. 

Ethical hackers find out the vulnerabilities in a network and rectify them before malicious hackers can hack into the system. Cybersecurity experts focus on implementing newer technology and reducing the risk of theft and leaks in the security system. 

How is a Cybersecurity Certification a Better Option? 

On the whole, Cybersecurity is a vast field and a cybersecurity certification will open more doors and can provide better future opportunities.  Individuals with an interest in this field can opt for a Cybersecurity course and make a great career out of it.
