The phrase “cybersecurity skills gap” has become a common part of the lexicon of cybersecurity professionals today. While there are many theories as to how we ended up this shortage, few have offered solutions that will solve the issue in the near term. And the need is desperate. As the work-from-home model becomes the norm and work becomes more broadly distributed, more applications, systems, and infrastructures are more vulnerable than ever. HackerOne discusses how we are looking in the wrong places for people to fill the existing holes in organizations. Hackers are part of the solution to the shortage — both today and in the future. 

Key Takeaways:

  • Discover who hackers are with data on their motivations, demographics, and real-world findings.
  • Hear real-world case studies on how organizations are keeping up with security through working with hackers.
  • Walk away armed with strategies on how to make hackers an extended part of any security team.
