When people talk about hackers, they usually have that negative image in their mind. Things like online terrorist hacking into banks to transfer funds or hacking into government database.
Actually not all hackers are bad. In fact, a lot of them are in the IT Security
With the increasing use of information technology in our life, network security plays a very important role. To tackle the bad hackers, you need the good hackers. I have a hacker friend who used to work in an auditor firm, and now he has moved on to another internet company. It sure sounds scary whenever he talked about hacking into your network and retrieving your files or stuff like that, but it also puts some ease at mind when you know that these people are also making sure that the bad guys can’t invade our systems.

Security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure, this course may be interesting to you.
