Uncomfortable question, right?

Well, ethical hacking is all about you. Why? Because the important question is, what will you do when you discover a major security problem with certain system? Will you inform the company about this, will you take advantage of it, will you tell someone else, will you try to fix it yourself?

There are many ways to react when you encounter a problem…


so is up to you to decide what will you do.

The association that gives these things defines that: A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of a target system(s). The CEH credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.

There is this other place that you can check out too if you are interested, here they have lots of information that you can get and that you can request. Is up to you how deep you want to go in this topic.

the goal is to make the cyber world a better place and one where you can feel safe about surfing in it. Is not an easy job, since everyday there are thousand of new apps and websites that try to harm you, so this is not only their job, but also ours, we also need to stay safe when looking around the different websites and be aware of suspicious and funny-look-like website…


And that’s the why of the first question. Because is about you, you can be whatever you want, you can become whatever you want, but make sure that whatever you do, always generate the maximum amount of positive points, and for that, nobody else can get red points. Also, every time something goes wrong, please ask yourself the question “how am I generating this?, how can I be part of this?” you will realize, eventually, that you could be part of any event you want, and therefore, that question is way more powerfull than what you may think.

So, for now that is all folks, but as always, good day, good luck, be safe, eat well, move your ass at the gym or somewhere else, take your vitamins, talk to interesting people, don’t text and drive, have enough sex (even if it has to be with yourself), learn things, share things and try to make the world a better place, move on on achieving your definition of “success” and drink more coffee!
