What is an
Ethical Hacker ?

What is an Ethical Hacker?

An ethical hacker, also known as an "ethical hacker" or "white hacker," is an IT security professional who uses the same techniques and tools as cybercriminals to test the security of IT systems and protect against online threats.

An ethical hacker's job is primarily to simulate a computer attack using techniques and tools similar to those used by cybercriminals to test the security of the company's systems and identify potential weaknesses. Once these weaknesses are identified, the ethical hacker can recommend security measures to address them and help the company protect itself against future threats.

Ethical hackers often work in conjunction with the company's security teams and may be employed by IT security firms or work as independent consultants. They must have a thorough knowledge of computer security and the techniques used by cybercriminals, as well as coding and general computer skills.

💡 What's the difference with being a pentester?

A pentester, or "penetration tester," is also an IT security professional who tests the security of computer systems. However, unlike an ethical hacker, a pentester is usually hired by the company to test the security of its systems, not to protect against online threats. The pentester also uses techniques and tools similar to those used by cybercriminals to identify weaknesses in the company's systems and recommend security measures to address them.

In summary, the main difference between an ethical hacker and a pentester is their role within the company. An ethical hacker often works internally to protect the company from online threats, while a pentester is often hired as an external consultant to test the security of the company's systems
