Ethical Hacking

Systematically attempts to penetrate a computer system or network on behalf of the organisation for the purpose of finding security vulnerabilities that attackers could use to exploit.

A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of a target system(s). The CEH credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.

Sphere ICT's Cyber Security Unit all holds the CEH designation, the customer can rest assured that we have skilled and knowledgeable hackers who will simulate the real thing. Our ethical hackers will use the same techniques used by malicious attackers, report all findings and assist in removing the vulnerabilities.

With the POPI Act lurking around the corner it would be advisable for any orginisation small or large to start with this type of assessment as this will provide great insight as to how secure your orginisation really is.

South Africa is a massive target for attackers they know that security is not really a major concern for South Africans. We say this because most of the companies we dealt with are of the opinion that they will not be targeted because they hold no value to the attacker. YOU CANNOT BE MORE WRONG, all companies and all people are targets. An attacker might not steal your information but they might be using your system/s as proxies in order to commit a crime.
