ATLANTA -- Becoming a hacker might be your best defense against cyber-crime.  That's according to a Norcross-based internet security firm.

Starting Wednesday, LIGATT Security International will begin sending messages on its Twitter account, teaching people how to become computer hackers.  The company hopes that by teaching people how hackers work, they'll be better equipped to protect their own systems and networks.

"You don't have to know anything about computers," LIGATT CEO Gregory Evans told 11Alive News Monday  "You don't have to be a computer security expert, or an IT manager or really have a big knowledge of security and computers.  You could be like Joe the Plumber.  So, we're going to teach you exactly, step-by-step, on how it happens and what you can do."

LIGATT will begin sending the "Hacker 101" tweets Wednesday.  You can follow them @LIGATT.
