Summary

If you’ve ever read about computer hacking, you might be surprised to learn that companies actually pay people to try to hack into their systems. It’s called “ethical hacking”. Should you decide to learn to conduct ethical hacking, you will be responsible for helping organizations to protect their assets and information systems from malicious hackers, who would like to take advantage of any information they can get their hands on. It’s quite an interesting field of work, learning to legally hack into the systems of organizations like utility companies, banks and even government agencies. You will use the same skills as malicious hackers, but you will be using them for a much nobler purpose. Instead of trying to rip companies off, or steal secrets, you will be reporting the problems in their systems, so that they can repair them. Ethical hacking pays well, and it can easily be a full time job. Courses are available in various locations. You can research courses online and register for classes that will qualify you to be a certified ethical hacker. 
Here is what you will learn after reading this book: 
White hat hacking versus black hat and gray hat hacking 
How to hack into computer systems 
Reporting vulnerabilities to business management 
Becoming CEH certified as an ethical hacker 
Performing penetration testing 
Helping IT management to protect their sensitive information
