when you said pwede eh did you mean na it is still "ethical hacking?"
and when you said non IT position does that include the CEO or someone in the executive level?
i had to read all the post again kasi parang nauulit yung mga sinasabi ko.
1.the CEO wants you to break into a computer suspected of leaking out info to other companies.
2.based on your job description, you have no legal privilege to do it, and normally you are not authorized to do it in any case
3. the only reason they asked you is because you can
1. have the order in written form and signed so you have proof na hindi ikaw ang nagkusang gumawa noon
2. if you have the proof, then do what they want you to do under their supervision. nandun sila habang ginagawa mo yun
3. after you get the info you need and the job is done, include it in your job description and ask for a raise (hahaha)
ethical hacking pa rin in my opinion kasi you did it for a greater good.
