A few weeks ago, HackerOne held its second annual security conference, Security@, bringing together security professionals, industry experts, hackers and more to discuss the importance of bug bounty programs, ethical hacking and transparency to make the world a more secure and better place for everyone.
Our very own CSO, George Gerchow took the stage at Security@ to share how Sumo Logic has partnered with HackerOne to create a modern day, DevSecOps approach to bug bounties that relies on transparency as the foundation. George’s biggest highlight from the conference was this coming together of transparency between highly regulated industries like finance, the government and healthcare, which are now actively seeking out ethical hacking programs that rely on experts to help find blind spots in IT environments and then work together to improve overall security posture. As we head into a new era of security, this open line of communication is going to help organizations come to terms with the fact that bugs will always exist and one of the best ways to remediate security issues is to be transparent with our peers and to share our individual learnings and best practices with our community.
