In this context, the services of ethical hacking appear. This term refers to the analysis of vulnerabilities in information systems and technological infrastructures exposed on the internet, through controlled attack or intrusion techniques and through the use of various tools, in order to reveal vulnerabilities that could be exploitable by third parties with malicious intentions. These techniques theoretically reproduce the modus operandi of the potential attackers in order to faithfully simulate the situations of impact that could give rise to and put in place the most adequate and, above all, more up-to-date defense measures.
