How to Hack the Pentagon The Cybersecurity Podcast

    • News

Last summer, more than 1,500 hackers targeted Pentagon websites – but it wasn't a massive cyberattack. These were vetted hackers invited to participate in the US government’s first ever bug bounty program. Chris Lynch, the director of the Defense Digital Service, and Lisa Wiswell, the group’s digital security lead, explain in this episode of The Cybersecurity Podcast why letting researchers find security flaws in exchange for money or prizes is a big part of the Pentagon’s push to solve complex IT problems. This episode is sponsored by HackerOne.
