An ethical hacking training is a very valid career option. Top companies in India such as Wipro, Infosys, and IBM are always looking for ethical hackers. This is because they constantly bring new products and services to the market. Security professionals command better salaries, because the skill level and knowledge level involved is more. NASSCOM indicates that India alone will employ more than 77000 professionals. As a minimum, these professionals are required to have a thorough understanding of the system.
WHAT IS ETHICAL HACKING
Also known as penetration testing, intrusion testing, and red teaming, it is a set of practices designed to find loopholes in an IT system. The objective is to test if the computers connected to a network are safe from vulnerabilities. Ethical hackers design systems and impose securities policies, so that the integrity of a company’s IT infrastructure is not compromised. With the increase of Internet penetration, the need for security has increased. New security technologies are introduced to keep pace with the changing dynamics of the security industry.
WHO EMPLOYS ETHICAL HACKERS?
After a cyber-security course, an ethical hacker can be employed anywhere. There is a dearth of such professionals in IT companies, healthcare organizations, defense institutions, schools, hospitals etc. These professionals are inducted on a short-term or long-term basis based on need. They can choose to be full-time professionals or even part-time consultants.
SKILLS REQUIRED TO BE AN ETHICAL HACKER
For someone employed in the IT industry, skills in reading and even writing in many programming languages is desired, but not always. Ethical hackers generally have a working knowledge of C, C++, Perl, Python, and Ruby. Knowledge of assembly language programming is crucial for those involved in analyzing binary files. Knowledge of different operating systems is required and so is expertise in configuring network devices, switches, routes, firewalls. All of this knowledge can be imbibed in an .

is one of the major concerns of online users these days and hackers are an inevitable part of this discussion. Every part of our cyber world is influenced by hackers and they exploit the vulnerabilities of systems to gain unauthorized access. While numerous people are confused between the terms hackers and cyber-criminals, many of you are willing to know more about hackers and how to become one.
Have you ever considered hacking as a career? There are few things that should be considered to figure out if hacking is the right job for you.
As I’ve discussed in , there is great confusion among people when it comes to things like cyber criminals, hackers, ethical hacking, black hat hacking, white hat hacking and more.
Who is an ethical hacker?
Ethical hacker performs hacking to help an individual or company and identifies the potential risks. An ethical hacker is a good guy and sometimes the term is used synonymously White Hats. They work to improve the overall internet security and search for weak points that could be exploited by the black hats – the bad guys.
Take a look at these points and you will understand what constitutes ethical hacking! These are “guidelines” that an ethical hacker must follow!
1. Respect an individual’s or company’s privacy.
2. Having a permission (expressed – often written) to break into a network and look for the loopholes.
3. After finding the vulnerabilities, you tell your employer about the unknown flaws.
4. After finishing the work, you must not anything open for later exploitation by you or someone else.
5. Do not take any kind of advantage of the permission and access granted to you.
Now, take a look , It’s a very well represented career path. For choosing this career as an ethical hacker, you can start by becoming an Information Security analyst or by becoming a computer programmer.

“A 15-year-old boy sits behind a glowing black monitor, typing furiously. The green text streams across his screen like a waterfall. His nervousness escalates dramatically as he sends rapid-fire commands to the strained computer. Suddenly, he lets out a triumphant laugh and proceeds to steal money.”
Such is the stereotypical view of a hacker. Yet, there’s so much more to this fine art than Hollywood or the media describes. Hackers are varied creatures and include these 7 types:
1. – Script Kiddies normally don’t care about hacking (if they did, they’d be Green Hats. See below.). They copy code and use it for a virus or an SQLi or something else. Script Kiddies will never hack for themselves; they’ll just download overused software (LOIC or Metasploit, for example) and watch a YouTube video on how to use it. A common Script Kiddie attack is DoSing or DDoSing (Denial of Service and Distributed Denial of Service), in which they flood an IP with so much information it collapses under the strain. This attack is frequently used by the “hacker” group , which doesn’t help anyone’s reputation.
2. – Also known as ethical hackers, White Hat hackers are the good guys of the hacker world. They’ll help you remove a virus or PenTest a company. Most White Hat hackers hold a college degree in IT security or computer science and must be certified to pursue a career in hacking.
3. – Also known as crackers, these are the men and women you hear about in the news. They find banks or other companies with weak security and steal money or credit card information. The surprising truth about their methods of attack is that they often use common hacking practices they learned early on.
4. – Nothing is ever just black or white; the same is true in the world of hacking. Gray Hat hackers don’t steal money or information (although, sometimes they deface a website or two), yet they don’t help people for good (but, they could if they wanted to). These hackers comprise most of the hacking world, even though Black Hat hackers garner most (if not all) of the media’s attention.
5. – These are the hacker “n00bz,” but unlike Script Kiddies, they care about hacking and strive to become full-blown hackers. They’re often flamed by the hacker community for asking many basic questions. When their questions are answered, they’ll listen with the intent and curiosity of a child listening to family stories.
6. – These are the vigilantes of the hacker world. They’re like White Hats in that they halt Black Hats, but these folks are downright SCARY to those who have ever tried so much as PenTest. Instead of reporting the malicious hacker, they shut him/her down by uploading viruses, DoSing and accessing his/her computer to destroy it from the inside out. They leverage multiple aggressive methods that might force a cracker to need a new computer.
7. – If a Script Kiddie took revenge, he/she might become a Blue Hat. Blue Hat hackers will seek vengeance on those who’ve them angry. Most Blue Hats are n00bz, but like the Script Kiddies, they have no desire to learn.
