White Hat Hacker
In an increasingly digital world, where hacking is a constant threat to computer security, black hats are the bad guys. But there are also good hackers called white hats, or cool hackers in our book. These computer security researchers compete to find and fix the most vulnerabilities in today's popular laptops and mobile phones.
The tech world's vigilantes, ethical hackers (a k a white-hat hackers), make the electronic world a safer place for all of us.
Their work uses the same methods as destructive hackers, but they do it not to wreak havoc or steal identities but rather to help companies find the flaws in their own cybersecurity systems. As contract or staff employees, they simulate attacks on clients' networks.
There's now even an exam, offered by the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants, that certifies ethical hackers. Cool!
