I’ve worked in the security industry now for about seven years, and in the responsible disclosure space for the last two and a half years. In that time I’ve heard and answered just about every question regarding legal, compliance and regulatory controls around vulnerability disclosure and bug bounties.
Bugcrowd’s goal from the beginning has been to utilize an incredibly efficient platform to facilitate the responsible disclosure of security vulnerabilities between organizations and the researcher community. That having been said, we understand that working with an incredibly savvy workforce of independent talent may raise some concerns, and it may surprise you to learn that the same goes for the researcher community. So whether you yourself have concerns, or your internal legal department does, we want to arm you with both logical justification and legal safety nets to put your mind at ease.
