First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for such a warm welcome to Bugcrowd. I am thrilled to be joining a brilliant team as the new CEO and proud to be a part of something that will not only make an impact on organizations, but also on each of us as citizens of today’s digital world. I have watched closely as Bugcrowd pioneered the space for crowdsourced cybersecurity and security testing, winning the hearts and minds of hundreds of customers and tens of thousands of security researchers around the world, through the leadership of Casey Ellis. I’m thrilled to join the team and help steer the ship through this next phase of growth.

Bugcrowd is excited and very pleased to announce the appointment of Ashish Gupta as our new Chief Executive Officer. With this addition, I’ll be transitioning to Chairman of the Board and Chief Technology Officer.
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?
