Well, we need "White Hat Hackers", but in my opinion, they need to be kept on a leash. Like working for some agency with oversight. They can't be allowed to run wild.
To me, that's as unacceptable as someone robbing a bank to expose it's vulnerabilities.
If allowed, every crook in the World would claim "White Hat" status.

Yes, we need them to be working in an organized way to fight hackers and to come up with innovative security measures.
Most companies and governments have been very laxed in cyber security. Putin's operation was able to successfully launch election related cyber attacks against the US and Europe.
Other bad actors have been invading power grid equipment etc. It shouldn't be that easy.
Cyber warfare is being waged and thanks to the incompetence in Washington, we're woefully unprepared.
