Ethical Hacking and Why It’s Good For Your Business


Ethical Hacking and Why It’s Good For Your Business

The thought of hacking your own business may sound counter intuitive, but you can actually greatly benefit from ethical hacking or white hat hacking. It’s an essential way to expose any cyber security issues and address them before your company is attacked. 

 

You may be asking yourself what exactly is ethical hacking? It is when a company gives consent to a trained and experienced professional who then uses penetration testing (pen testing) to discover any security vulnerabilities. This is important because a malicious hacker could use these same vulnerabilities to exploit and take advantage of your business. Penetration testing may involve similar techniques to black hat hacking, the kind you tend to hear about in the news because the professional penetrates the computer system or network.

 

The need for ethical hacking continues to grow as cyber attacks increase in complexity and evolve to become more and more malicious. At Vertex, our cybersecurity method is about maximum cyber resilience and we help to identify any weaknesses within your security network.
