White Hat Hackers
Cybercriminals are brilliant, relentless, and ruthless. So how can organizations hope to fight them? One way is to hire people just like them (minus the ruthless part). A growing wave of companies are using hackers to foil hackers. They unleash “researchers” (aka hackers) to “attack” an organization’s defenses. Some of these companies create their own elite Red Teams of ethical, or white hat, hackers, as they are known. Others commandeer virtual armies of crowd-sourced hackers. The goal is the same: probe for weaknesses that may have escaped the internal security team’s best efforts. Kevin Delaney, senior writer for Connected Futures is joined by Jay Kaplan, CEO of the ethical hacking firm Synack.
