Presented by

David Baker, CSO of Okta, Casey Ellis, CEO of Bugcrowd, John Pescatore, SANS Analyst

About this talk

Bug bounty programs are moving from the realm of novelty towards becoming best practice. While bug bounty programs have been used for over 20 years, widespread adoption by enterprise organizations has just begun to take off within the last few. Bug bounty programs have increased 210% percent since 2013. Bug bounties provide an opportunity to level the cybersecurity playing field, strengthen the security of products, and cultivate a mutually rewarding relationship with the security researcher community. Join Bugcrowd, SANS, and a customer panel as we discuss the momentum behind crowdsourced security. Topics covered: 1. How bug bounties fit with a robust security strategy 2. Why bug bounties are being adopted by all types of organizations 3. How Okta saved the equivalent cost of two full-time employees with Bugcrowd
