As an ethical hacker, part of your work involves advising others on how to improve their security as well as discovering weaknesses in their defences.
From earlier work, defence planning can vary according to the type of user and size of business. The plans though all have sections in common.
- Safe working practices - to guard against common vulnerabilities. Additional advice would be given to cover mobile devices if appropriate (phone, laptops & tablets)
- Protection by configuring using the proper software protection
- Using the appropriate physical security
- How to comply with the appropriate legislation
