Supplementing your security program with bug bounties
Bug bounties have been all the jazz in offensive security research the past few years. At the same time, more and more companies are running bug bounty programs of their own. In this talk, we will share our experiences from both sides of bug bounties, from being a top performer in one of the biggest bug bounty programs to launching and running an international bug bounty program in a large enterprise. We will give our thoughts on the value and limitations of bug bounty programs, when companies should consider it and alternatives to running a bug bounty program.
