Parler Security Hack : What Happened?

Parler was hacked due to a common development mistake. How can you avoid the same fate?


When it comes to startups, priorities are generally focused around getting off the ground and making payroll, often sacrificing security.

The reality is, the bad guys don’t care if you’re a startup or more established. We saw this at Parler, the internet’s new social networking site. Parler got caught in the common startup balancing act, experiencing hyper-growth with a lack of threat modeling.

Today on the Bugcrowd Stream, our Founder and CTO Casey Ellis spoke with Director of Infrastructure, Coen Hyde, about the role of security in the early stages of a business and how asking what might go wrong early on could save you a lot of grief later.
