ABSTRACT: Bug bounty programs – compensating a researcher who has found a “bug” in a company’s system – can be effective at mitigating cybersecurity risk, but they must be implemented and managed carefully lest they be abused and backfire. Bug bounty programs debugged will present a holistic view on the process of creating and maintaining a successful program, as well as tips on how to succeed as a bounter and how to stay out of trouble.

Moderated by ITSPmagazine chief editor Sean Martin, this panel will include expert opinions from experienced practitioners, the leader of a well-respected bounty program, “meals” - a top ranked bug bounter, and a partner and bug bounty expert from Baker & McKenzie.
