I'm pondering on my career in the future, and an ethical hacker is a career I am interested in.
I’ve currently in college (I live in the UK), one of my courses is an A level in ICT. I will also be hoping to start university in 2011.
I have some questions about ethical hacking careers that I would like answering, if you don’t mind?
What is the role and responsibilities of an ethical hacker?
I don’t want to seem rude in asking, but what is the money like? I’ve seen jobs for ethical hackers and information risk consultant (which i believe is another term for ethical hacker?), with the salary to be around £50k-£70k a year. Is this true for most jobs?
Where do you work? This may seem like a weird question, but, do you have a permanent place of work, or do you work nearby to your employer? Like, if a bank asks you to test their system, would you work in a nearby cafe on a laptop?
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and hopefully answering my questions.
