Earn Money Legally Using Ethical Hacking, Learn how to hunt bugs practically. A comprehensive cyber security guide.
Bug bounty programs allow independent security researchers to report bugs to an organization and receive rewards or compensation. These bugs are usually security exploits and vulnerabilities, though they can also include process issues, hardware flaws, and so on.
The reports are typically made through a program run by an independent third party (like Bugcrowd or HackerOne). The organization will set up (and run) a program curated to the organization’s needs.
Programs may be private (invite-only) where reports are kept confidential to the organization or public (where anyone can sign up and join). They can take place over a set time frame or with no end date (though the second option is more common). Businesses starting bounty programs must first set the scope and budget for their programs. A scope defines what systems a hacker can test and outlines how a test is conducted. For example, some organizations keep certain domains off-limits or include that testing causes no impact on day-to-day business operations. This allows them to implement security testing without compromising overall organizational efficiencies, productivity, and ultimately, the bottom line.
