      So ethical hacking is where companies want to make sure that criminal hackers can’t get into their networks, so they pay legitimate hackers to test their networks and find the problems with it, so they can fix them before criminal hackers get a chance. It’s sort of like testing.

      In the same way you might check all the locks on your house work, and test your burglar alarm and cctv all works.

      Currently I’m employed to do that for other companies.
