Meet the Hackers Powering the World's Best Bug Bounty Programs

Uber, Twitter, GitHub, the Department of Defense (DoD), and many others have rewarded over $10 million to white hat hackers to uncover 30,000+ vulnerabilities as part of bug bounty programs. Hackers get paid as much as $50,000 for reporting the juiciest bugs! So who are these hackers… and is it really all about the money? Lauren Koszarek and Adam Bacchus will provide insights around the motivations and backgrounds of over 600 friendly hackers surveyed as part of HackerOne’s 2016 Bug Bounty Hacker Report. Join this presentation and learn about the people hired to hack into organizations with the purpose to expose vulnerabilities.
