Take this. - GET PAID TO BE A HACKER !!!

The world of internet has been tremendously growing and its growing on a relatively fast quantum. The positive effect of which is that, its development has brought about recent findings and systems which consequently enhances the kind of living people of today's generation have. The rise of internet has also brought about a lot of things such as; the rise of electronic commerce, easy access to vast stores of various reference materials, collaborative computing, e-mail, and new avenues for advertising and information distribution, to name a few. As with most technological advances, there is also a downside of which such as the ever prevailing criminal hackers.

What is a hacker ? A hacker is person who enjoys learning the details of computer systems and how to stretch their capabilities as opposed to most users of computers, who prefer to learn only the minimum amount necessary. He can also be one who programs enthusiastically or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing about programming.

The changes brought abut by the revolution in the world of internet has obviously involved almost everyone in different parts of the world. Many system of government, high companies, and other private individuals around the globe are anxious to be a part of this revolution, what they fear is that some hacker will break into their system and replace their logo with pornography, or will read their e-mail without permission, steal their credit card number from an on-line shopping site, or implant software that will secretly transmit their organization's secrets to the open site. With these concerns and more, the ETHICAL HACKER can help.

What is Ethical Hacking ?

In the quest for an effective approach to the problem on criminal hacking, organizations came to realize that one of the best ways to evaluate the intruder threat to their interests would be to have independent computer security professionals attempt to break into their computer systems. This scheme is similar to having independent auditors come into an organization to verify its bookkeeping records. In the case of computer security, these “ethical hackers” would employ the same tools and techniques as that of the criminal hackers, but they would neither damage the target systems nor steal information. Instead, an evaluation will be made based on the target's security system and report back to the owners with the vulnerabilities they found and instructions for how to remedy these vulnerabilities found.

This exactly the same reason why the EC-Council has put up measures to certify IT professionals and give them an opportunity for to learn intensely about IT Security and make use of their knowledge on the positive aspect of hacking and consequently become a Certified Ethical Hacker. These certified ethical hackers will eventually be the experts who will check the weakness of the security system of the target then suggest options on how to strengthen it based on their knowledge on how the criminal hackers can possibly attack their targets.

With all these updates on the IT Security, people on the E-Commerce world can now hope for a better operations for a better E-Commerce world wide.
