[Jobs roundup] Is ethical hacking your interest? Check out these job openings

If hacking networks is your expertise and building effective security systems your strength, here’s a list of openings for you.

Cyber-attacks are one of the largest threats to any company in this digitally connected world. To secure the network of a company, ethical hackers are recruited.

The difference between an ethical hacker and an unethical one is that a company permits the former to hack its network and perform tests to prevent illegal hacking. Ethical hackers build a security system that safeguards the company’s information from cyber-attacks. They identify the vulnerabilities in the network and strengthen the security system regularly.
