What is ethical hacking?

Ethical hackers (also known as penetration testers) are employed to conduct penetration tests – controlled hacks – on businesses to test systems and find vulnerabilities.

Unlike ‘black hat’ hackers, ethical hackers are security professionals able to provide the knowledge and skills needed to fix flaws before they can be exploited. Businesses that hire ethical hackers get specialist insights from the perspective of an intruder. With this knowledge, businesses can fix vulnerabilities and boost their cyber defences.
