What Is Ethical Hacking?
Ethical hacking is designed to give a company the most realistic look at its vulnerabilities without actually being hacked by a cyber criminal. It is an authorized attempt to gain unauthorized entry to a computer system, application or data. The process involves mimicking strategies and actions of a malicious hacker to help identify cyber security vulnerabilities.
