With the increasing importance of cyber security, organisations have adopted a strategy of combating hackers, commonly referred to as “black hats”, with ethical hackers, known as “white hats”. To secure their web-exposed assets, organisations have implemented bug bounty programs, offering rewards to those who successfully identify vulnerabilities.
The concept emerged in the 1980s and was popularised by Internet providers such as Netscape in the late 90s. It has now become standard practice for over 50% of S&P500 companies. While the OMXS30 has not yet adopted this practice, the bug bounty industry is growing rapidly in Sweden.
As organisations become more interconnected, their assets are increasingly vulnerable to being hacked. While bug bounty is typically associated with websites, APIs and applications, it is now being offered for other asset types such as underlying infrastructure, IoT and OT.
How would you like to earn 230,000 euros if you managed to manipulate the results of the Swiss elections? Or how about hacking into your JBL speaker at home can earn you up to $5,000? Everything has a price and bug bounty is an open market where organisations choose what they are interested in and how much they are willing to pay for it.
Join us on 22 March from 5:30pm to hear all the stories Mats Ogren has to say about ethical hacking and Bug Bounty.
