A successful cyber attack on a country could cause damage of millions of dollars, not to mention human lives. More and more infrastructures are connected using computer networks. Power supply, transportation, health systems and more are susceptible to cyber attacks.
Therefore comes the need for professionals who know how to protect those networks from all kinds of attacks.
This is the Ethical Hacker job, to protect our lives by infinite research on threats and how to prevent them.
It’s no wonder that the Washington Post published today that Cyber security is a rapidly growing field.
So if you’re thinking about a career as an Ethical Hacker, you might be on to something (if you got the skills ofcourse).
