You are new to hacking and you head of Ethical Hacking, wondering what is it ? Here is your overview with explanation!
When computer geeks search for vulnerabilities for companies, computer scientists call this activity ethical hacking. Before a criminal finds a vulnerability, honest computer scientists should see the company before a vulnerability so that they can quickly improve it.
Ethical hackers in large companies fall into two groups:
- RED : These geeks try to attack company systems “like a real hacker”. They should penetrate the system unnoticed and document all vulnerabilities and data leaks .
- BLUE : The geeks are there to prevent the RED team from succeeding (and to detect hacking attempts). If the RED team succeeds, the BLUE team will need to upgrade their systems with the accumulated knowledge of the RED team .
