Computer security

In the computer security context, a hacker is someone who seeks and exploits weaknesses in acomputer system or computer network. […] A white hat hacker breaks security for non-malicious reasons, perhaps to test their own security system or while working for a security company which makes security software. The term “white hat” in Internet slang refers to an ethical hacker.

Also in the area “IT forensics” there is some catching up to do in the training of relevant professionals. This is about to change. The ITEMO wish to develop an appropriate training and testing concept. The working group will be asked to create an appropriate training concept according to the modular concept, curriculum, examination regulations and exam questions.
