The work of ethical hacking is still considered hacking because it uses knowledge of computer systems in an attempt to in some way penetrate them or crash them. This work is ethical because it is performed to increase the safety of the computer systems. It’s reasoned that if a white hat can somehow break the security protocols of a system, so can a black hat. Thus, the goal of ethical hacking is to determine how to break in or create mischief with the present programs running, but only at the request of the company that owns the system and specifically to prevent others from attacking it. Ethical hacking is also known as penetration testing, intrusion testing, and red teaming. It is conducted by ethical hackers to find possible problems in the system.

What is the need of a penetration tester
• Are you a current security tester seeking more structure to your process, or an IT professional wishing to add security testing to your skills or responsibilities?
• Are you a developer who wants to ensure that you securely code new functionality at every stage of a program’s development?
• Are you security aware but out of date in the recent vulnerabilities of a particular code language?
• Are you accountable for the security, integrity and privacy of valuable customer data in your organization and need help in meeting your compliance targets?
SDC can help you and your staff learn the ethical hacking techniques commonly used to violate and exploit corporate networks and be able to identify how and when they are used. Our courses enable participants to uncover vulnerabilities in operating systems, applications and IT networks and provide advice in applying appropriate countermeasures.
SDC’s Hacking’s dedicated team of experts provides training on a wide range of ethical hacking and vulnerability identification techniques.
Our courses are designed to combine theoretical teaching with practical application of the tools and methods learnt and it is expected that participants will be able to return to their workplace and immediately apply the lessons learnt.
This course will significantly benefit anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure.
