Webinar recording: 30-minute TECH Talk: Bug Bounty programs

Stroz Friedberg is a specialized risk management firm built to help clients solve the complex challenges prevalent in today’s digital, connected, and regulated business world

Bug Bounty Programs – compensating a researcher who has found a “bug” in a company’s system – can be very effective at mitigating cybersecurity risk.

These programs have quickly become a core part of the mature, secure development lifecycle initiative; and successful common practice with companies like Facebook, Google and Microsoft. However, inviting hacking or any form of sanctioned attacks into an organization to uncover security flaws, comes with risks. Bug Bounty Programs must be carefully, designed, implemented and managed to avoid these potential risks and to make sure they are ‘successful’.

This TECH Talk examines how to get started in implementing a successful and effective Bug Bounty program to achieve your company’s vulnerability hunting goals.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • Learn about the different types of Bug Bounty programs, who should consider using one and when/how to start
