Sticking With It : How To Choose a Target & Stay Motivated


It’s really easy to find yourself lost in the number of bug bounty programs available, whether on dedicated platforms or external programs, the sheer number can be exhausting. Even when you find something to hack, brought on by the frustration of not finding a bug or anticipation when a new invite finds its way into your inbox, temptation sets in. It can be difficult to resist the urge to jump ship despite the guilt of “Am I giving up too quickly?“. In this talk we cover how to choose the target right for you, how to keep motivated whilst hacking and more importantly to make the call: time to move on or keep on trucking.
