Hacking isn’t inherently bad and comes in many colors: black, white, and all shades in between. Cybersecurity relies on white hat hackers. “White hat” or Ethical Hacking is key to strengthening network security. It also involves thinking like a “black hat” hacker (those who engage in an illegal form of hacking) in order to find out how to protect the system from hackers like them. Organizations utilize ethical hackers to see if their networks are vulnerable to outside attacks. 

This presentation will provide an overview of white hat hacking, including information on penetration testing, footprinting, reconnaissance, and social engineering. 

This presentation is brought to you by the BS in Information Systems and MS in Data Analytics online degree programs at the CUNY School of Professional Studies.
