FIC 2019: YesWeHack’s community, NGOs & CivicTech unite through a unique Bug Bounty Campaign.

For this edition of FIC 2019, YesWeHack is organizing, for the first time in the history of FIC, a special event dedicated to Bug Bounty.

The International Cybersecurity Forum: the European reference event bringing together all stakeholders in digital trust will take place on 22 and 23 January.

This unprecedented bug bounty campaign will take place in an original space reserved for dozens of security researchers so that they can operate over several scopes, and where applicable, earn rewards according to the criticality of the reported vulnerabilities.

For this Premiere, the scopes are submitted by NGOs and CivicTech projects wishing to harden their systems and thus better protect their information assets and their reputation.

YesWeHack has chosen this year to help NGOs and Civictech as a priority, because many European citizens use tools developed by this sector to contribute to the common good, democracy, associative and charitable projects.

“For all actors, customers, developers and researchers, this Bug Bounty campaign within the 2019 FIC is a great and useful opportunity to exchange and confront the reality of threats in order to significantly increase the level of security and privacy by design”

Guillaume Vassault-Houlière – CEO @YESWEHACK

The Bug Bounty’s area will welcome bug hunters who will cooperate with “program managers” from the selected projects with the support of Romain Lecoeuvre, the CTO of the YesWeHack team.

The rewards will be of two types: a total prize pool of several thousand euros is planned to reward the best researchers and goodies collectors will delight some players.

Open Source, NGOs & Hackers : Unity is strength

YesWeHack is definitely a group of passionate people who all have become professionals. As passionate people, we do have principles and it is precisely these principles that keep us on the right path of our social, economic and financial development.

For some of you, you’ve been noticing that we are operating in a competitive world without forgetting our fundamentals.
We are willing to defend the common goods mainly the Internet neutrality, Press Freedom, Open Source (software & hardware).

To us, those 3 pillars – amongst others – are strong allies for Civil Society and especially for NGOs to defend and promote Human Rights.

This is the reason why we do care about helping NGOs and non-profit organizations who share the same principles.

Cooperation is good for all of us !

In 2017, our community of security researchers participated in 3 bug bounty programs powered by our Bounty Factory :

In june 2017, the first program was launched by OCCRP and it exposed one tool of the organization : VIS.OCCRP.org

As a matter of fact, OCCRP is involved in the original Panama Papers, Paradise Papers amongst many other projects.
