Hacking cum laude Article on Internet Security written by Peter Streibelt, EMEA ERS Marketing Manager
More than 170 banks, internet providers, editing houses, radio and TV stations fell victim to pro-Serbian hackers during the Kosovo war. The hackers aimed at the largest possible damage they could cause. War without bombs - war via Internet. In order to prevent such methods or aggravate circumstances, IT companies such as IBM employ specialists who try to break into their customers' systems the way hackers do. They detected vulnerabilities and eliminate them. This is called the homeopathic method which aims at beating the hackers with their own weapons. This method has proved to be so successful and helpful that a full range of new and interesting jobs has opened up. The educational preconditions, however, are rather demanding.
