Meet, Eat, and Geek

Bugcrowd Bug Bashes are 1-to-2 day hackathon events that put our customer’s security teams in the same venue as some of the world’s top white hat hackers in a fun, interactive, and mutually educational environment to focus and accelerate the hunt for critical vulnerabilities. Incentivized by bug-bounty rewards and infused with a healthy dose of competition (and snacks), these events have become staples for challenge-hungry researchers and companies looking to reinvigorate their bug bounty programs.
