There are a number of reasons why bragging is a bad trait in a hacker:
- They should be able to prove their ability rather than just talk about it
- If they’re loose lipped they could inadvertently expose the organisation to ridicule
- A hacker likes nothing better than ridiculing someone else’s inadequacy.
At the end of the day, someone who has the skill and tenacity to get the job done is the perfect fit for any organisation. Don’t let a ‘name’ come between you and the opportunity to secure the perfect asset for your business.
