Bugcrowd is no stranger to putting on impactful events for hackers and customers alike. The pandemic put a despairing halt to our in-person events and, well….we missed seeing you all! That’s why for 2022, fresh out of our Covid caves, we wanted to put on an epic cybersecurity event that would leave us all charged, filled, eager and maybe a little exhausted in the best way possible. 🙂

Whether you joined us at Black Hat, the Bug Bashes or DefCon, there were plenty of ways for you to make a mark and meet some seriously awesome people.

Bugcrowd founder, Casey Ellis, was meetin’ and greetin’ all week long. Every single one of you made a huge impression on him.

Hackers hard at work securing some of the biggest organizations around. Plus, making some pretty great friendships in the process.

Our first winner of the Vegas Bug Bash 2022, nagli! The leaderboard was buzzing, but he pulled out on top and secured the victory.

” Indeed’s BugBash was a really great experience. The team on-site presence, BugCrowd triage and the hospitality were top-notch and I’m thankful that I was part of it.” – nagli


We had a blast interviewing hackers like bysop, tess, InsiderPhd and more!

Plus some really hot takes on the future of cybersecurity, entrepreneurship, the history of bug bashes and so much more!

Sam, Indeed’s Bug Bounty Engineer said, “The Bug Bash was a useful and fun addition to the public bounty we already run through Bugcrowd. The ability to have one on one conversations with the researchers is what makes these events unique. Direct feedback on your scope is invaluable!”

Raise your hand if you stopped by the Bugcrowd booth at Black Hat! Not only did we have tons of awesome swag to hand out, but we got to meet so many curious individuals during our theater presentations. Bugcrowders and hackers were featured in several winning conversations and got to answer all your questions.

Ummm, can you leave some “cool” for the rest of us? 🙂


From our team to you, thank you so much for joining us at our Vegas Bug Bash 2022, Black Hat and DefCon. In whatever capacity you engaged, we couldn’t have done this without you. Here’s to the new friendships we made! Oh, and Vegas….look out for us in 2023!
