Ethical hackers are called white hat hackers, and their work heard by listening to their names.

Many people think hacking is hacking, it’s bad or good, and hacking is illegal. Any hacker is considered a cyber criminal. Their idea is not exactly right. Today’s article is the primary objective of ethical hacking and why you will be an ethical hacker? Discuss those issues in detail. So let’s go ahead and start the narration without further introduction.

Ethical Hacking

Ethical hacking

The word “Ethical” means “Moral” – it is moral or legitimate hacking, and those hacking those who have their policies do not do anything immoral. First, know what a hacker is doing or what he does? The hacker tries to find any system (computing/networking system) error and penetrates the security level of the system and enters the primary system and receives control. Now if someone tries to access the system without the permission from a system or software that is looking for security errors, then such hacker will be called malicious hacker or black hat hacker. Malicious hackers break system rules and safety and can damage the original system.

So hacking means finding any system errors or shortcomings entering it. What is Ethical Hacking? – Ethical hacking is a hacker after getting permissions from a system admin or software company that starts checking the system error. If he breaks the system security, then he has full permission to do this, he does not work without the authorization of malicious hacker. An ethical hacker must respect any company or system’s privacy and must work with permission. After doing the job, after checking the system, if it finds an error, it will surely inform the company about the error and will help secure the system by providing security punch. If he finds any backdoors, then he will seal it so that the malicious hacker can enter it by not harming the system.

Moreover, he uses various techniques on the system to attack the system, so that it can see in front of any system error. If he do not find the system error after running a hack attack, but it does not guarantee that the system is 100% Secure. Because it is not 100% Securus, it is necessary to check regular security.

Ethical Hacker’s Demand

Ethical Hacker's Demand

In fact, the demand for ethical hackers or white hat hackers has increased in the last few years. The world is becoming more digital, and everything is going on in computing and networking. And with increasing security risks, the ethical hackers needed to reduce the chance. Forget about the advanced world, look at our country, starting from the education results in our country, job applications, ticket cutting, accepting salaries, etc. Now everything is becoming internet/website / or application dependent. Not just government, private companies are too serious about their business and security.

There are many e-commerce sites in our country, whose security is extremely tight to keep alright. Now suppose a malicious hacker came and hacked the government database of the education or train ticket cutter system by online, thus making the booking of the ticket, thus damaging both the state and the country. Ethical hackers look at every system, and Malicious attacks the system as a hacker and fixes the problem if it finds a problem or informs the company or government about the problem so that it is possible to adjust as quickly as possible.

Let’s take an example to understand the importance and needs of an ethical hacker on the whole subject. Suppose the king of a region built a royal palace, to live and complete all the work of the kingdom from there. Now he must need to secure the castle through various security arrangements. Because maybe the palace may be attacked at any time. There will be lots of resources in the palace, many papers which are critical. Now suppose the king made big walls to protect his castle, and many guards cleared them.

Ethical Hacking

The enemy can’t attack quickly because security is so tight. So what they will do? Trying to find the facade of the wall where the guard will be attempting to enter from somewhere less. Now it may be that the king wall has tangled heavily, but the king has forgotten the fact that there was a door in the old one direction, and the attack could come from that direction. So much so tight security will not be useful either. Now suppose that the king employed a person or group who would check the safety of the wall, like the enemy’s side would revolve around the mansion and try to find an old or weak wall, and if any watchman would keep watch over whether he was asleep or not. As soon as the problem found, its action will take, and the king will be informed.

That will reduce the chance of attacking enemy forces and entering the Empire. So the particular person or group of this story is Ethical Hacker, and at that time, surely they understand their needs. It is also critical to check the system with a lot of security measures. A lot of good moral hackers from country to abroad, For them, the company could survive millions or billions of dollars. Malicious hackers also work to find system errors, but they start the work without informing the system admin or business, and if they find the error, they will start to harm.

So IT companies are looking for a good white hat to escape from the black hats, they hired on a high pay scale, according to expertise. If you’re a Certified Ethical Hacker, you can be a Salary of your year up to 60 lakhs according to the company and your skills (Source: Infosecinstitute.Com).
