1. How to become an ethical hacker: Technical skills
Like most jobs in cyber security, some previous knowledge of coding, networks and software is required, so for those with an IT administration or systems operation background, a move to ethical hacking should be relatively smooth.
Matthias Maier said: "You need to have an understanding of networks and network architecture, some kind of coding skills or scripting skills for example Python, or have an understanding or it.
"And then of course experience of operating systems, mostly Linux, Unix and security solutions for example, knowing the difference between firewalls as ethical hackers not only penetrate systems but they also need to advise the right solution to apply to a particular security hole,"
