Thanks again to everyone who joined us for LevelUp 0x04 last week!
Bugcrowd is dedicated to our researcher community. Through the LevelUp series, we aim to provide resources and opportunities to help our community develop new skills to advance their bug hunting. But it isn’t done alone.
I’m so grateful for all of our presenters for their time and knowledge, and for our global viewers who joined in from all hours of the day to learn and participate with us. It truly was a representation of this series’ theme: collaboration.
It was an exciting two day live stream, jam-packed with content from eight presentations. We kicked off with a welcome address from Bugcrowd CEO Ashish Gupta, who shared his approach to the “infinite game” of hacking and his vision for the future of crowdsourced security, followed by our presentations.
