Everybody's doing them -- from the U.S. Pentagon to Uber and even large technology companies, like Google. And, with all these players now in the bug bounty game, we've witnessed some notably large payouts in recent months. But, are these programs helping to detect insider and other threats? As well, we've seen some that have seen their own share of vulnerabilities, so how is this impacting, if at all, the scope and integrity of such programs? What should companies pay attention to and how can they ensure they're addressing their own infrastruture's holes when news of a bug and its bounty hits? We discuss these programs and how they're helping companies with their security programs and, more specifically, their vulnerability management processes and plans.
