Ethical hacking

What is it?

Ethical hacking – is the method of information system security assesment by simulating targeted attack. The main goal of this test - to detect information system vulnerabilities.

This attack is conducted from the potential hacker position and may exploit breaches and vulnerabilities found during the scan, but highly qualified specialists will follow certain ethics during this attack.

The difference between ethicak hack and real hack:
Hack Penetration test
No ethics Specialists stricly follow ethics
Hacker acts without permission Each step is authorized by system owner
Conducted with possible financial and other loss Limits of the test are strictly defined
Hacker will not give you a report Customer recieves the detailed report
Vulnerabilities are exploited for the own goals of hackers Vulnerabilities are detected in order to remove or reduce theirs impact
