The idea may sound counterintuitive, but ethical hackers can actually empower small businesses for the better by using their skills for good. Unlike malicious hackers, ethical hackers purposefully break into servers and online systems to expose vulnerabilities so companies can fix them before they spiral and cause catastrophic data loss or financial damage. Some ethical hackers are doing it for the satisfaction and challenge, and others come from robust IT backgrounds with a focus on digital security. Meanwhile, traditional hackers are usually hacking into systems illegally for fun, profit or even revenge. There are many misconceptions and challenges ethical hackers must overcome in order to gain a reputable foothold in the business world. Many hear the word “hacking” and envision entire computers being taken down and sensitive information released to the world, or recall major hacks like Sony’s, when information on thousands of personal computers, servers and devices was compromised, erased or released to the public.
