Ethical Hacking

We are accustomed to think of hackers as youngsters working in a secluded garage, with hooded sweatshirts, having fun while employing their technical advanced knowledge for unethical reasons. However, this popular idealized version has limitations and often masks the truth.

Nowadays Hacking is a fully-fledged worldwide billionaire business and this is why it is critical to understand it in order to face it.

Happenings such as the compromise of devices (PCs, Smartphones, Tablets or corporate networks) are becoming more frequent than before thanks to the business and private data being stored on digital devices.

Among the reasons that prompt hacker to act:

  • Obtaining sensible and critical knowledge such as passwords, in order to steal money and/or identities
  • Corporate espionage on demand in order to extort confidential information or steal patents
  • Personal pleasure in committing cybercrime to the detriment of victims of interest, such as nations, banks or ministers
  • Sociopolitic activism

IT Security should be one of the main priorities of every business, however too many times it has been overshadowed by other minor questions. KERNET wants instead to define it as the top priority, while conveying and promoting its significance to its clients by using extensively proactive security systems, both for the peripherical network defence and the operative systems and software defence.
