Mangaluru: “For the sake of a secure online future of many citizens all over the country, ethical hacking must be learnt for safety purposes and not for misuse”, said brand ambassador for Prime Minister’s “Digital India” Project Ankit Fadia in Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management in Adyar.

On his visit to Mangaluru, he dropped into Sahyadri College on Friday, October 28 to disseminate his knowledge by conducting a workshop on “Ethical Hacking”. Speaking to the gathering at the event he opined that ethical hacking was important for national security but at the same time it could be a bane if misused by the ones who learnt it.

Pertaining to the topic of misuse of ethical hacking Ankit went on to say, “It is indeed true that hacking in an ethical manner can save a lot of cybercrime from happening and keep many e-accounts of people safe from online sharks. It is also true that this skill can be misused for illegal purposes but at the same time it is hard to reject it totally because of its better implications in the online world.”

“Officers of the law should learn the skill of ethical hacking since most cybercrime divisions of the police department do not have hackers. The IPS officers from Hyderabad, Kerala and Karnataka say that they have undergone cybercrime training but they often seek help of ethical hackers to crack cases”, he said while stressing on the point that police department must have active ethical hackers.

Concluding his address to the gathering, Ankit said that after the advent of hacking from computers to mobile phones, the future of hacking will proceed to electronic home appliances using various codes and disrupting effective working of the appliances. “Common knowledge of ethical hacking should be learnt by everyone to be safe in the digital world”, he concluded.
