Núñez showed the participants astonishing and important figures and indicated that some techniques include models and practices of social engineering, day zero attacks, espionage, assault and passwords damage.
It is a must to protect through Ethical Hackers
Companies affected by cyber attacks get their finances and reputation compromised, and it is estimated that 90% of vulnerability will continue to exist. And an Ethical Hacker can identify and know how a malicious hacker thinks.
When a program of Ethical Hacking is contracted and implemented by a company it allows the construction of safe information systems, avoid the access of unauthorized cyber hackers, reduce the risk and, very important, maintain the confidence of customers, explained Rafael Núñez.
This leads to a frequent question: ¿What is the solution before so many malicious and not very ethical hackers?
There are two logical answers: the implementation of Ethical Hackers, and teaching on hacking techniques.
Industry companies are and will continue to be the focus of hackers, however the user will always be the final objective.
