re: How To Hire A Hacker
I would add a couple of caveats that I think should be obvious, but I have seen ignored. First, know the difference between ethical hackers and non and even though you may accept the risk of their past respect the principle of division of responsibility. If they push for uncontrolled and unmonitored network access, you've accepted too much risk. Secondly, some social engineering skills are not equivalent to being a hacker. A bully is simply a bully even if they present their intimidation skills to elicit passwords from others or colleagues as hacking.
