Ethical Hacking

Hiring Ethical Hacking professionals who hold internationally recognized certifications means finding an ethical hacker who possesses the knowledge and skills, which are in high demand today, as well as a professional certification in the area of network security.

Ethical Hacking is different from Penetration Testing, which focuses explicitly on penetrating only the information in the system. In the latter case, penetration tests focus on information systems, while ethical hacking is much broader and focuses on the larger area that protects the systems.
    
In other words, penetration tests can be regarded as a process of penetrating a particular information system. Compared to ethical hacking, penetration testing is a more narrowly focused phase, but it is still an important part of ethical hacking.
    
Organizations generally conduct pen tests to strengthen their corporate defense systems, which include the infrastructure adjacent to computer systems. It is noted that while penetration testing can help organizations strengthen their cyber-security defenses, it should only be done after companies discover a malicious emerging system, program, or application. While a pen test may not answer all security concerns, the test minimizes the possibility of a successful attack.
    
Ethical hacker attacks involve penetration tests, as network experts methodically try to penetrate network computer systems to find vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could exploit. Although ethical hackers often use the same techniques and methods to test and penetrate systems, they do so to document vulnerabilities and advise system owners on how to fix them, rather than exploit them.
    
Organizations hire individuals to provide ethical hacking penetration testing as a service, and these individuals are referred to as "white hat hackers." Such hackers gain access to computer systems that do not belong to them, and they can do so without the owner's permission. When a white hat hacker exploits a system's vulnerability that allows him to conduct a cyber attack, he is obliged to disclose the vulnerability directly and exclusively to the owners. It is also against his professional ethics to misuse information he/she is aware of, for example; to keep information a secret so that he or she can use it later.
    
Some companies and governments have decided to recruit ethical hackers to protect themselves, because only hackers can stop hackers. Ethical hackers can detect vulnerabilities and vulnerabilities in computers and information systems by exploiting the intentions and actions of malicious hackers. IT systems and identify their weaknesses and vulnerabilities through the use of ethical hacking techniques such as penetration tests and vulnerability analysis.
    
The findings of ethical hackers are typically used to recommend preventive, corrective, and countermeasures to reduce the risk of cyber attacks. In fact, the terms "ethical hacking" and "penetration tests" differ slightly, and are used when it comes to the process of reviewing an organisation's systems. An ethical hacker is a person who is trusted to try to break into an organization's network or computer system with the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker.
    
You don't want to call an ethical hacker if you want a penetration tester because you end up with a service that doesn't meet your needs, thus, it is best practice to hire an ethical hacker if the service which you or your organization requires is broader in scope than conventional penetration testing.
