A career in cyber security as a white hat hacker…

Get a personalised offer

There are over 1.5 million monitored cyber security attacks each year in the US.

An ethical hacker specialises in penetration testing to ensure that an organisation’s information systems are secure, and are hired to do so instead of hacking the system of their own accord.

An expert in computers and networking, the ethical hacker seeks out vulnerabilities in a system that more malicious hackers would normally exploit in order to obtain sensitive information, which they would then sell on.

A career as a cyber security specialist offers:

An engaging and lucrative role

A secure working future due to the growing notoriety of black hat hackers in the media

Opportunities to work from home/remotely

Opportunities to travel

The exciting possibility of working for global corporations on highly sensitive and often government funded projects

The current national average salary for a cyber security specialist is £60,000.

An honest nature alongside a talent for manipulation is useful in this career path, because at times you will need to persuade people to part with credentials, execute files, and even restart systems in order to help you reach your goal.

Key skills of an ethical hacker are:

Communication
Strong work ethics
Problem solving
Self motivated
Dedicated

Did you know that a cyber security breach causes 29% brand damage, 21% loss in productivity and a 19% loss in revenue?
