WHAT DOES A PENETRATION TESTER DO?
A Penetration Tester (a.k.a. Ethical Hacker) probes for and exploits security vulnerabilities in web-based applications, networks, and systems.
In other words, you get paid to hack legally. In this “cool kid” job, you will use a series of penetration tools some predetermined, some that you design yourself to simulate real-life cyber attacks. Your ultimate aim is to help the company develop its security.
