At Bugcrowd, we take great pride in the diversity of our community. We’re excited by the opportunity that we have every day to work with researchers of all backgrounds, interests, and skills. Today, we’re excited to launch our latest effort in this area: Bugcrowd University.

Bugcrowd University is free. open-source, educational content and training available to the entire infosec community. All the BCU content creation was spearheaded by Bugcrowd’s VP of Trust and Security, Jason Haddix with support from his entire Trust and Security team. Each module focuses on techniques and strategies that we’ve found to make a profound impact on a bug bounty researcher’s success.

The first set of five modules we’re launching today focus on web hacking. We hold ourselves and our content to very high standards and we think we’ve created something very special with this first set of launch content. We also believe in giving a shout out to others in the space, with each module including extensive links and references to our colleagues’ content.

We will be adding more modules and content to Bugcrowd University in the coming months. If you’d like to see a specific type of content, let us know! We’re very excited to see BCU grow and expand over time.

Our researcher community motto is simple: It Takes a Crowd. I’m proud to launch Bugcrowd University and I can’t wait to see how the community reacts and particularly, how the content can help them reach their goals.

If you have any feedback or questions about Bugcrowd University, please post on the Bugcrowd Forum and let us know what you think.

Or you can join us on Twitter. Please tweet @Bugcrowd using hashtag #ItTakesACrowd and spread the word about Bugcrowd University!

Sincerely,
Sam Houston (on behalf of Jason Haddix, JP Villaneuva and the rest of the Bugcrowd team)
