With rapid emergence in information technology field, there has been constant flow of information from one system to another. In such situation it becomes important to understand the ways through which information can secured. That is where concept of white hat hackers needs to be understood, which has been elaborated in this write-up. It is important to understand that information technology industry and especially organisations focused on providing information security related products are more inclined towards white hat hackers. These organisations even though have developed and scaled their products and services to a level where they can claim that they provide high level security of information assets, however in order to ensure that there is no loophole left they hire white hat hackers as well. In general perception hacking is associated with negative intentions, but when seen from perspective of a technologist, hacking means having complete command on the networking and other information technology related concepts (Thomas, 2002). It is interesting to analyse that how there is constant struggle of supremacy between the black hat hackers and the white hat hackers, in other words it can also be termed as a fight between good and evil.
