    I'm a Penetration Tester and Cyber Security Specialist who is a professional in evaluating the security posture of Web-Applications (Websites) and ensuring the security of personal clients' online identities, accounts, devices, and networks, I've possessed my current knowledge through 3+ years of self-study and research plus 2+ years of work in the industry, protecting clients on a personal level and running vulnerability assessments against business websites, always leaving positive impression and impact, I hold a great record of being able to expertly provide the following services: - Perform comprehensive security checkups on Emails and Phone numbers and pinpoint security holes which often lead victims to be hacked with zero interaction nor awareness from them. - Assist in Account Recovery (Ex. Instagram, Facebook) - Educate thoroughly on the findings and remediations for a vulnerable target, equipping clients with enough information to trust themselves as they continue to utilize the technologies as normal with no fear of being targetted by hackers. - Investigate and educate on online frauds/scams, especially crypto ones, why and how they work, and how to distinguish between legit and not legit easily. - Clean up networks and devices from viruses/malware and ensure optimal patching for security. - Report fraud websites that impersonate legit businesses for a takedown. IMPORTANT: When it comes to cybersecurity-related services, there is a number of scammers not to be underestimated, whether within or outside of Upwork, therefore stay vigilant and keep in mind the following, 1. If you were scammed online via crypto, there's no one out there with the right to give a guarantee that they will be able to recover it for you despite how well furnished the so-called hacker's portfolio appears to be, the chance remains very slim and you should only pursue this kind of service for the sake of leaving no stone unturned knowing the high probability of failure, and you should only select a freelancer with a reputable profile and reviews to back up their activity because scammer accounts are usually fresh with no reviews and no verified ID, feel free to consult me to evaluate that. 2. Same applies to the request of hacking an account, there are complicated caveats that explain why it DOES NOT work the way you think it does but to keep it short, if you want someone's account hacked, aside from it being illegal and unethical and isn't the type of "service" I provide, the chance for it to work is about 1% to begin with, again, I'm available for consultation, account recovery is a different subject with a higher probability for success as long as it's your own account that was lost/hacked.

    Please don't contact me regarding hacked accounts. There is nothing I can do and it's illegal to try and hack them back. Sorry! For over 10 years my greatest passion has been cyber security. For the first 6 years I worked for NCC Group, the largest cyber security consultancy in the world and gained a wide range of skills and experience working for high street banks, global corporations and UK government ministries. I've now moved on and have started my own business, my greatest passion is helping small and medium sized businesses fix their security problems. I eat, drink and sleep cyber security. I have experience testing a wide range of technologies, including but not limited to web applications, internal networks, external networks, mobile applications, network devices and Wi-Fi. Having a broad range of experience allows me to rapidly place in context of the asset I'm testing within the clients environment. My focus is on helping web and mobile developers, network administrators and business owners ensure their products adhere, not just to best practice but to the highest security standards. By using a combination of manual and automated testing I am able to produce results in a timely and cost effective manner. I assist with remediation by providing advice on which areas of vulnerability to focus on first and how best to implement fixes. I have a track record of understanding highly technical security issues and being able to convey them to both a technical and management audience. I'm always happy to discuss client requirements and work with them to identify the best methods to achieve their objectives. As part of the process, I offer a pre and post engagement call to ensure we are a perfect match and that I have achieved your goals.

HOW TO HIRE TOP CERTIFIED ETHICAL HACKERS

How to hire certified ethical hackers

Looking for new ways to beef up your cybersecurity? A certified ethical hacker can find vulnerabilities in your security systems before a malicious third party does.

So how do you hire certified ethical hackers? What follows are some tips for finding top certified ethical hackers on Upwork. 

How to shortlist ethical hacking freelancers

As you’re browsing available certified ethical hacking consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the freelancers you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Technology fit. You want an ethical hacker who has intimate knowledge of your technology stack (networking protocols, development frameworks, etc.).
  • Certifications. In addition to CEH (Certified Ethical Hacker), you can screen candidates for specific penetration certifications (e.g., CTP, OSCE, SANS GXPN). 
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular certified ethical hacker.

How to write a certified ethical hacking job post

With a clear picture of your ideal certified ethical hacker in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a freelancer to know if they’re the right fit for the project. 

An effective ethical hacking job post should include: 

  • Scope of work: From penetration testing to generating formal vulnerability reports, list all the deliverables you’ll need. 
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project. 
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain networks, test tools, or other technologies, mention this here. 
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

CERTIFIED ETHICAL HACKERS FAQ

What is ethical hacking?

Ethical hacking is the practice of running penetration tests and vulnerability assessments on systems and networks. The idea is to step into the shoes of a hacker and gain unauthorized access to a network or a system. These access points and vulnerabilities are then documented so they can be patched with the next update. 

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in certified ethical hacking freelancers:

  • Cybersecurity (e.g., network, system, information)
  • Penetration testing and vulnerability assessments
  • System administration
  • Technology-specific expertise (e.g., experience with Linux/Unix enterprise servers)

Why hire certified ethical hackers?

The trick to finding top certified ethical hackers is to identify your needs. Are you seeking general help scanning open ports on your WordPress site for vulnerabilities? Or do you require something more specific, such as a WiFu-certified penetration tester to launch offensive security wireless attacks on your office building’s WiFi network? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life. 

How much does it cost to hire a certified ethical hacker?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced certified ethical hacker may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A contractor who is still in the process of building a client base may price their hacking services more competitively. 

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.
