Prevention from Hackers

What can be done to prevent Hackers from finding new holes in software and exploiting them? Information security research teams exist to try to find these holes and notify vendors before they are exploited. There is a beneficial competition occurring between the Hackers securing systems and the Hackers breaking into those systems. This competition provides us with better and stronger security, as well as more complex and sophisticated attack techniques.Defending Hackers create Detection Systems to track attacking Hackers, while the attacking Hackers develop bypassing techniques, which are eventually resulted in bigger and better detecting and tracking systems. The net result of this interaction is positive, as it produces smarter people, improved security, more stable software,inventive problem-solving techniques, and even a new economy.Now when you need protection from Hackers, whom you want to call, “The Ethical Hackers”. An Ethical Hacker possesses the skills, mindset, and tools of a Hacker but is also trustworthy. Ethical Hackers perform the hacks as security tests computer systems.
Ethical Hacking
Also known as Penetration Testing or White-Hat Hacking  involves the same Tools, Tricks and
Techniques that Hackers use, but with one major difference 'Ethical hacking is Legal '.Ethical hacking is performed with the target’s permission. The intent of Ethical Hacking is to discover
vulnerabilities from a Hacker’s viewpoint so systems can be better secured. Ethical Hacking is part of an overall information Risk Management program that allows for ongoing security improvements. Ethical hacking can also ensure that vendors’ claims about the security of their products are legitimate.As Hackers expand their knowledge, so should you. You must think like them to protect your systems from them.You, as the ethical Hacker, must know activities Hackers carry out and how to stop their efforts. You should know what to look for and how to use that information to thwart Hackers’ efforts.You don’t have to protect your systems from everything. You can’t.
The only protection against everything is to unplug your computer systems and lock them away so no one can touch them—not even you.
That’s not the best approach to information security. What’s important is to protect your systems from known Vulnerabilities and common Hacker attacks.It’s impossible to overcome all possible vulnerabilities of your systems. You can’t plan for all possible attacks especially the ones that are currently unknown which are called Zero Day Exploits. These are the attacks which are not known to the world. However in Ethical Hacking, the more combinations you try — the more you test whole systems instead of individual units — the better your chances of discovering vulnerabilities.
