"White Hat" Hacking

Black Hat, Gray Hat, White Hat... what is the difference? Not so long ago, hackers were solely considered to be cyber-criminals. Today, "ethical hacking" and "White Hat" hackers play an invaluable role in cyber-security for large corporates, government agencies, and other strategic organizations.

When protecting your networks from hackers, cyber terrorist and internal threats, the IT Manger and their team cannot rely on traditional software and hardware.  Today, if your IT department is not thinking like a bad guy and thinking outside-of-the-box you are guaranteed to become a victim.  There are several “hacker-for-hire” honey pot websites where hackers sell their services and those individuals, companies, countries and other organizations hire them. Mr. Evans will share:

  • Database of thousands of people who are looking to hire computer hackers and what types of organizations they are targeting.
  • Various types of tools that cyber terrorist use to gather information from employees.
  • Best practice in ensuring the safety of a companies secured information.

Join us as we explore the world of ethical hacking and the importance of this increasingly necessary role.  Gregory Evans, renowned cyber-security expert and "White Hat" hacker with an impressive background in security penetration test for groups from the FBI to the actor Jim Carrey, will hsare with our dinner group about how security penetration testing can prepare organizations for unforeseen cyber attacks.
