Certified Ethical Hacker

When I first read the expression "Ethical Hacker" I thought to myself: How can someone be a hacker and ethic at the same time?
Well, I didn´t know that an ethical hacker is an IT security professional.
After researching online about this topic I found that an ethical hacker really exists as a profession in the real life. This professionals are computer and network experts. They test a security system to find vulnerabilities that a true hacker could take advantage of.
An ethical hacker tests a security system using the same methods as a malicious hacker but instead of penetrating the system he reports the problems found so they can be fixed.
With the recent economy downturn, some IT related jobs saw their paycheck decrease while ethical hackers´ are rising.
A Certified Ethical Hacker is a specialized professional that received proper education in IT security and received a certificate of course completion.
