An Ethical Hacker

When the word "hacker" is mentioned, most of us tend to have negative thoughts about it, associating it with malicious viruses that have intruded and violated our privacy in our computer systems. That is a frightening thought. But now after reading and learning more about IT Security the only real way to overcome "hackers" and to make sure our systems are safe is to hire an ethical hacker.

An ethical hacker is an IT expert who "attacks" a security system to seek vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could exploit. He is the one who does not destroy but instead diagnoses and corrects the problems so that the IT security is not compromised. Therefore, being an ethical hacker is not simple at all, they have to spend long hours to know all about the dangers that lie in computer security. A job as an ethical hacker in an IT security is is always in demand because he/she has the responsibility to stay one step ahead of the real bad guys in this area. Due to the heavy commitment, an ethical hacker commands a high salary.
