Crowdsourced security: How to run an effective bug bounty program
What if you could expand the way you found vulnerabilities in your application by tapping into a global community of security researchers?
Over the past few months, our team has worked collaboratively to revolutionise the Onwardly brand and move forward key elements that will define our mission towards security for every business.
Growth is no doubt the main focus for early-stage startups. But growth isn’t always linear, nor does it come overnight.
Cyber risk is one of the main challenges businesses face today. Yet, according to the World Economic Forum, cybersecurity failure is still perceived as a short-term risk⏤increasingly leaving many vulnerable due to a "lack of readiness."
CTOs mostly come from very technical backgrounds. So when it comes to moving up into a leadership role, often there’s a misconception that a CTO is there to listen out for anything techy and report back. Instead, the CTO is a member of the leadership team and their primary responsibility (along with the rest of the C-suite) is to drive the business forward.
When getting started with privacy, it can be confusing to know what the privacy officer does, who will fulfil the role, and what needs to be done in line with the law.
Security exists because of people, so it makes sense to solve security challenges with people at the centre.
It’s important to have a plan for privacy, not just to protect your reputation, but to ensure you can confidently operate globally with your customers front of mind.
The crux of it all – especially for tech startups – is that you need the fundamental elements of cybersecurity best practice in place to grow.
Cybersecurity is no longer a focus of just the office environment; businesses need to mitigate security risks and add protection at the device and application level. And that's where 2FA comes in.
