Ethical Hacking- Advantages and Disadvantages

Advantages of Ethical Hacking

Most of the benefits of ethical hacking are obvious, but many are overlooked. The benefits range from simply preventing malicious hacking to preventing national security breaches. The benefits include:

  • Fighting against terrorism and national security breaches
  • Having a computer system that prevents malicious hackers from gaining access
  • Having adequate preventative measures in place to prevent security breaches

Disadvantages of Ethical Hacking

As with all types of activities which have a darker side, there will be dishonest people presenting drawbacks. The possible drawbacks of ethical hacking include:

  • The ethical hacker using the knowledge they gain to do malicious hacking activities
  • Allowing the company’s financial and banking details to be seen
  • The possibility that the ethical hacker will send and/or place malicious code, viruses, malware and other destructive and harmful things on a computer system
  • Massive security breach

These are not common; however, they are something all companies should consider when using the services of an ethical hacker.
