    Bug Bounty Feature

    In this article, Threatpost catches up with David Baker, the chief security officer at Bugcrowd, about the future of bug bounty programs. While bug-bounty programs may seem like a cure-all solution for companies looking discover vulnerabilities in their systems more efficiently, the fact remains that a program could overwhelm a firm’s internal security team and cause other major headaches if implemented the wrong way.

    “You have to realize that the crowd is going to find a lot more vulnerabilities than your typical in-house pen-test team. So oftentimes, there’s this engineering push back, like hold on, we don’t have our internal processes set up,” David Baker, chief security officer at Bugcrowd told Threatpost.

    Threatpost caught up with Baker to discuss the right — and wrong — approaches for implementing a bounty program that can boost companies’ security effectively with minimal operational disruption.
