Inside The Unlikely Romance - Crowdsourced Security from a Financial Services Perspective

It has been 20 years since Rainforest Puppy released the RFPolicy responsible disclosure policy, 11 years since Google and Facebook brought the concept of bug bounty into the eye of the security industry, and 9 years since Bugcrowd pioneered the concept of inserting a platform in the process to facilitate conversations between builders and breakers in order to level the skill and resourcing playing field against our adversaries.

So, how's it all going? Did it all turn out to be a "tech company" thing? What have the results, and the impact on cybersecurity defense been on more traditionally conservative industries, like financial services? What can the history of the relationship between helpful hackers and organizations tell us about what we'll need for the future?

In this talk, Casey Ellis (Founder, Chairman, and CTO of Bugcrowd) will unpack some salient lessons after nearly 10 years building Bugcrowd.
