re: How To Hire A Hacker
There are enough security experts (aka "white hat hackers") out there who know the drill that companies shouldn't have to tap anyone with questionable histories. It's really no different then every other discipline out there. Want to take a risk on the guy who broke into someones network and published their confidential data? Go for it. But I sure wouldn't recommend it.

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.

Every BS computer scientist in America must hack his professor's grade book, or some similar data, before he can graduate.
