As a founder there is nothing better than watching the company I started grow and evolve. In the four and a half years I’ve watched Bugcrowd grow by leaps and bounds – the team has grown threefold in the past year alone. While our guiding principles, core values, and vision of the future of cybersecurity remain unchanged, today we have evolved as an organization. To use a much-used term from the early aughts, we are now very much Bugcrowd 2.0, and I’m proud to announce a brand-new website that reflects just that.

Bugcrowd is putting on a conference for bug bounty hunters, but over the internet! On July 15th 2017, we will host an all-day conference with presentations from bug bounty hunters & penetration testers sharing their best practices, strategies, and research to help level-up their fellow bug hunters.
Our goal for this conference is to create opportunities for researchers to learn and level-up their skills. We’re also working on ways that we can help researchers network and meet one another during the conference.
Last week we announced the categories for our 2nd Annual Buggy Awards which will award a select group of individuals and organizations in the bug bounty space. Today we’re pleased to announce the finalists in these categories in anticipation of the awards ceremony next week.
These finalists represent just a handful of organizations and individuals that make this economy so vibrant and we are thankful to the entire bug bounty community.
We are pleased to announce the categories for this year’s Buggy Awards. These awards represent a select group of individuals and organizations who have done fantastic work in the bug bounty space in the past year.
These awards highlight the achievements of top performing customers and researchers and serve as a reminder about what is essential to maintaining the health of the community as a whole.
Yesterday a vulnerability in Cloudflare CDN and DDoS prevention service was disclosed by Google’s Project Zero. The blog post stated that an HTML parser for specific Cloudflare features was vulnerable to leaking sensitive information of other Cloudflare customers.
Today we wrapped up our first company-wide Hackathon and I felt it worthy of a short blog while the judges deliberate over who had the best project… It’s not about winning anyways, right?

Over the last few months, we’ve been challenging our crowd to submit bugs against some of our most challenging targets – thick client applications.
Today, as I embark on a new journey with Bugcrowd, I reflect on the most common question I have heard: “why leave Okta?” It’s a good question. I am honored to have served as the Chief Security Officer at Okta, building a world-class security program for a truly innovative company. Moreover, the ride at Okta was meteoric and I know they will continue on their path to world domination. But now, it’s time for disruption. To be more specific, the opportunity to completely change the information security industry. That is where Bugcrowd is going – and that train is leaving the station with me on it.
