About 80% of people who interview for IT security jobs have begun their careers as hackers, according to Chilean IT solutions company NovaRed.

"To work in IT security in a company you need to know about hacking," according to Andrés Pérez, manager of regional services and IP connectivity at NovaRed. But hackers who have sought to obtain confidential information and sell it for profit are never hired at the company.

"We as NovaRed train our security professionals in ethical hacking; it is part of the job," said Pérez.
