Learn about how Bugcrowd's Next Gen Pen Testing Enables Movember to Secure Data and Focus on Fixing Bugs

“We love the fact that after all our other security testing is complete, we kick off the Bugcrowd program and still find valuable issues that others have missed. It’s the creative power of the many people who are on your panel that find new areas we need to improve.”

— Marcus Nance, Delivery Lead for the Movember Foundation

Next Gen Pen Test

Industry

Non Profit

  • Challenges

    • Movember handles millions of dollars each November, requiring stringent platform security
    • Movember ran traditional pen test before each busy period, but they were too expensive and returned the same results every time.
    • Movember did not feel confident in the security of its data.
  • Outcomes

    • The Movember Foundation gained access to Bugcrowd’s Elite Crowd, to identify and patch issues faster and enable the small security team to enter November Movember with confidence that the platform was as secure as possible.
    • Bugcrowd’s Next-Gen Pen Test Programs not only provide actionable results, they also include methodology and reporting that the Movember Foundation can use for audit and compliance.

The Benefits of a Next Gen Pen Test Program

Like many organizations, the Movember Foundation runs regular pen tests. However, after receiving the same results year after year, the non-profit foundation wanted to try something different. Movember turned to Bugcrowd.

Private, next gen pen test programs provide organizations with a diversity of skills and perspectives at scale – in a more controlled environment. At Bugcrowd, only the Elite Crowd — those researchers with proven skills and trustworthiness — receive invitations to private programs. Private programs can be scoped or built around a customer’s testing needs and parameters. A private program can also meet requirements around background checking, ID verification or even location.

With next gen pen testing, the Movember Foundation gained access to Bugcrowd’s Elite Crowd, to identify and patch issues faster and enable the small security team to enter Movember with confidence that the platform was as secure as possible.

A Focus on Fixing Bugs


Since 2003, Movember has raised awareness and funds for men’s health. In 2018 alone, the organization raised $87 million AUD. With more than 5 million Mo Bros and Mo Sistas around the world participating in this effort, the security of the the foundation’s platform is incredibly important. Movember runs its annual next gen pen test in early Fall to ready the platform for the influx of traffic ahead of the month of November. Bugcrowd facilitates all researcher communication enabling the foundation to focus strictly on fixing bugs.

Bugcrowd has run fully managed crowdsourced security programs since 2012. Bugcrowd’s dedicated customer success, researcher success and security operations teams remove the “noise” from bug bounty, vulnerability disclosure, and next-gen penetration testing programs. As a result, customers receive actionable results faster, allowing them to fix bugs faster.

With Bugcrowd everything seemed so seamless: innovative testing, ease of platform use and speed of detection are all great.
