A recent study by EC-Council, a leading global cybersecurity credentialing body, shows that Ethical Hackers receive a higher salary ($84,497 in the US) than Network Administrators ($58,828 in the U.S). The study goes on to show that Certified Ethical Hackers earn even more, with some earning as much as $106,375. In fact, according to Global Knowledge, CEH is one of the 15 highest-paid IT certifications of 2018. With over 4,000 unfilled ethical hacking jobs currently available in the United States alone, as per LinkedIn Jobs, it is evident that many IT professionals ought to be looking to transition into the ethical hacking industry. Robert Half, a global human resource consulting firm, shows that the salary range for a Systems Administrator ranges between $97,296 — $164,736 in NYC while a Systems Security Administrator gets $135,582 — $228,664. Additionally, With cybercriminals attempting a security breach every 39 seconds, it is no surprise that loss due to cybercrime has skyrocketed. To make matters worse, the cybersecurity industry sees the creation of 300,000 new malware every day. These data breaches are estimated to cost organizations close to $150 million, leading to an annual global loss of $2.1 trillion. “With cybercrime on a serious incline, it is no joke that the industry needs much more than just a handful of skilled cybersecurity professionals. At EC-Council, we are committed to using innovative and new approaches to train cyber experts to prevent cybercrimes and to promote a safer and secure cyber environment,” says Jay Bavisi, Founder and CEO of EC-Council Group. To become a CEH Master, a candidate must successfully pass the CEH exam and demonstrate competency in managing real-world hacking challenges via the CEH (Practical) Exam. This demands the prospective ethical hacker to discover and exploit real-time vulnerabilities while auditing the systems set up by EC-Council in the cloud, thus enhancing the challenge and making them job-ready.

This Breakfast-Making Machine Is The Best Thing Ever.
One of my favorite movies growing up was 'Peewee's Big Adventure' - which, compared to its contemporary kids' movie equivalents, was quite the acid trip. One of the best scenes toward the beginning was when Peewee was getting ready for his day. He'd pick out one of his usual trademark suits and head down into the kitchen, where this very quirky Rube Goldberg machine would fix him his breakfast. However, I never thought it would be real someday. It took inventors Peter Browne and Mervyn Huggett over 1,000 hours to build, but the machine isn't even FOR them - it's actually for their wives! The machine, while definitely not as compact as other modern machinery, has a number of incredibly cool features, including: A toaster that will toast your sliced bread nice and evenly. A hot kettle that will not only pour tea or coffee, but brew it too! A beaker of boiling water that cooks eggs to a perfect soft boil. It also shoots out the morning newspaper and presents the cup of tea or coffee, boiled egg, and toast directly to the person about to enjoy their breakfast. Check out Peter's walk-through of this super amusing breakfast machine by clicking the embedded video clip above, and then let me know: If you were an inventor, what kind of machine would you build? Personally, I could use a machine that will help me get ready and out the door in the morning - maybe something with an iron, ironing board, blowdryer, flatiron, brush, and full make-up set all in one? Anyway, comment below with your thoughts, and for more strange tech news, follow my Weird Science collection!
11 Struggles Of Ridiculously Creative People
Honestly, I'm not disorganized...I just have a lot of ideas. 1. People are always asking you "what do you do?" Creative people do a lot of things. It's hard to pinpoint exactly what you do, but you're good at whatever that is right? 2. You've got a lot of different interests. You like music and art, fashion, writing and movies. You play guitar and you draw. You like a lot of different kinds of websites and you work on a lot of different things. There's nothing wrong with that. People may criticize you for your divided focus, but you view it as a gift. 3. People are always concerned about your wellbeing. You tend to get stressed pretty easily, probably because you're doing a lot of things at once. You can't help it, you love to work and you love to let your creativity flow. Probably because you're being rewarded for just being yourself. 4. You are really eccentric, because most creatives are. It's lame to be weird as a kid, but totally cool to be weird as an adult. If you're going to be crazy, you better get paid for it. Being creative means that you're automatically a secret weapon. You come in when there's no other recourse. 5. You have an insatiable need to create, and sometimes it makes you crazy. You wake up in the middle of the night sometimes and you end up writing something profound in your notebook, or drawing a beautiful masterpiece. There is something inside of you that makes it hard to sleep or take off from work. You have to be doing something all the time, and alhough that leads to stress and anxiety...you will ultimately be rewarded. Because everyone loves a good worker, and people like it even more if that work is innovative. 6. When you get blocked up, it can totally cripple you. Your creativity is the thing that keeps you going. When you hit a road block, and the ideas stop flowing it can seem like you have nothing. But sure enough, when you put pen to paper to draw, write, paint or create, you know that something will come out. Because it has to. 7. Your creativity isn't a hobby...it's your life. It offends you when people don't value it as an asset. Sure, your'e not like everybody else, but that's a really good thing. Creativity is something that not everyone can possess. It's a natural ability and when people tell you that you can't use it, or that it's not valuable, they're wrong. 8. You constantly worry about missing opportunities, and not moving quickly enough. Because your brain is always firing on all cylinders it's easy to become anxious. When those blocks happen, things can get trapped and ideas start to falter. It seems like you're always creating something new, and when that doesn't happen...well, it might seem like the end of your world. 9. You're always fighting with yourself about art and commerce. What can make you the most money doesn't necessarily yield the most artistic results. There's a constant struggle in your head based on a key struggle that has been happening for centuries. It's a fundamental thing. You want to be creative, and make art. And people want to sell your creativity for profit. You have to find the good in what you're doing. 10. You have a serious fear of becoming a "starving artist". You don't want to prove all of your haters right. People in creative fields, or creatives in non-creative fields are always pitted against those who go the more "traditional" route. It's something you'll have to deal with. Creatives are automatically viewed as the underdog, simply because people tend to misunderstand what you're doing. 11. No matter what holds you back, you find a way to get past it. Because you're creative, and nothing can stop you. You're constantly inventing new ways of doing things, and you won't stop until you change the world.
