Career Option in Ethical hacking

Name: Amit

Q: Sir, I want to build a carrer in ethical hacking. Is this a good carrer option. Please Help me.

A: As Sun Tzu put it in the 'Art of War', "If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained, you will also suffer a defeat." It is the duty of system administrators and network security professionals to guard their infrastructure against exploits by knowing the enemy (the malicious hacker(s), who seek to use that very infrastructure for illegal activities).

The Ethical Hacker is an individual who is usually employed with the organization and who can be trusted to undertake an attempt to penetrate networks and/or computer systems using the same methods as a Hacker. The goal of the ethical hacker is to help the organization take preemptive measures against malicious attacks by attacking the system himself; all the while staying within legal limits.

You can join training program for Certified Ethical Hacker certification. The Certified Ethical Hacker certification will fortify the application knowledge of security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure.

You will learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. You will also learn about Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDoS Attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. 

Make sure to join a training program that is latest and conducted by certified trainers. It is a specialized career option and you can have many exciting career opportunities in IT and other organizations.
