How can companies work with the ethical hacker community?
The cybersecurity landscape is constantly changing, which means some companies are struggling to keep bad actors out of their systems. This is in addition to the fact that hackers are also getting smarter, finding new ways to access data every day, which means cybersecurity needs to be stepped up.
Founded in 2016, Intigrity is a leading European platform for bug bounty and ethical hacking, which aims to address the limitations of traditional security testing, such as pentests. Its interactive platform enables customers to initiate large-scale managed security testing and better prioritize remediation by more accurately assessing risk.
Enterprise customers can continuously test their digital assets for vulnerabilities and, on average, enterprises receive 53 reports within a week of launching on the platform. Additionally, 71% receive a high to critical vulnerability report within 48 hours.
Today, Intigriti is recognized for its innovative approach, impacting customer safety awareness and researchers’ lives. In 2021, Intigriti received Deloitte’s Fast 50 2021 award in recognition of the platform’s impact. In 2020, the company won Deloitte’s Rising Star Award.
The ever-changing world of ethical hacking
On a mission to explore and explain ethical hackers, Intigriti recently published its ‘2022 Ethical Hacker Insights Report‘ Ebook.
A bug bounty hunter, also known as an ethical hacker or security researcher, is a cybersecurity expert who uses their skills and expertise to hack for good. A bug bounty program allows independent security researchers (ethical hackers) to report bugs to an organization in a legally compliant manner.
The company examined its drivers, motivations and ambitions. He revealed that in 2022, becoming an ethical hacker is an increasingly popular ambition among information security professionals around the world. According to the survey of 1,759 security researchers, 96% would like to spend more time on bug hunting in the future and 66% see it as a full-time career. This is especially true for respondents under 30, with more than three quarters (77%) of this age group saying they would consider bug bounty hunting full time.
The Ebook presents an understanding of their views on ethical hacking and bug bounty programs, as well as information on how companies can work with a globally distributed ethical hacking community.
