BFM: ETHICAL HACKING

Ethical Hacker

 

Ethical hacker is a computer and networking expert who systematically attempts to penetrate a computer system or network on behalf of its owners for the purpose of finding security vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could potentially exploit

 

Dangers of web and mobile and how ethical hacking is performed.

Threats

  • Insider (from within), intentional & unintentional (phishing attacks from emails, malware to connect to internal network bypassing all securities)
  • Most attacks are done by bots
  • Automated software & tools are free and easy to obtain
  • Human factor (be proactive, you hack yourself first before the bad guys hack you)

 

White Hats

  • Recommendation on how to fix the loop holes found & mitigate risks
  • Report vulnerabilities found

Black Hats

  • Crackers – technology enthusiasts
  • Exploiting and taking advantage of loop holes

 

IOT
