When Computer Hacking is OK

It’s now just part of digital life.  If your company has a network with a connection to the internet you can be hacked.  This happens in different ways and it can happen to you. Just look a few weeks ago in the Calgary Herald March 18th “Computer Virus Spurs Patient Privacy Scare” The Sunridge Medical Clinic staff first noticed performance issues in January.    The results of tests revealed a virus double whammy that resulted in records being accessed.   Introducing the Certified Ethical Hacker (C.E.H.)* or as Andrew Jackson of Next Digital prefers to call it is “Penetration Tester.”  A C.E.H. is a professional certification provided by the international Council of  E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council.)

An ethical hacker is usually employed by an organization who trusts him to attempt to penetrate networks and/or computer systems, using the same methods as a hacker, for the purpose of finding and fixing computer security vulnerabilities.
