I must admit that I have a little bit of knowledge about hacking, but it wasn't enough to be called as a Certified Ethical Hacker! I even thought that it was illegal all along, but I was completely wrong. It could however bestow us into a world of profession that big businesses and multinational companies do employ to protect their whole system. While the hacking skills may be the same, it is the intent that makes all the difference.
Apparently, in EC council training we would learn the following categories:
- Security Fundamentals
- Ethical Hacking
- Penetration Testing
- Computer Forensics
- Disaster Recovery
- Secure Programming
A working knowledge of the latest hacking techniques is a fluid thing. It is always changing. These qualified individuals perform risk analysis and help the various domains to work congruently to assure a high level of IT Security for the whole system.
