Sponsored by Businesswire

HackerOne, the number one hacker-powered pentesting and bug bounty platform, today announced the agenda for its annual conference, Security@ San Francisco 2019 and opened its second round of registration, here. The only conference dedicated to the booming hacker-powered security industry will take place on October 15, 2019 at the Palace of Fine Arts.

In its third year, the event is set against the backdrop of an industry-wide acknowledgment of the importance of bug bounty and vulnerability disclosure programs. Challenges around defending the front lines, scaling security teams at high-growth companies, cybersecurity policy, and hacking the talent gap, among other topics will be addressed by experts from across the globe.

Agenda highlights for the 2019 event include:

  • Fireside chat with Phil Venables, Senior Advisor & Board Director, Goldman Sachs.
  • First hand accounts from hackers who broke the $1 million bounty landmark on their varied approaches to bug hunting and what keeps them loyal and motivated.
  • Insights from security professionals at today’s fast-growing tech innovators from Slack, Postmates, and Shopify on how to build security programs that grow and evolve with rapidly scaling organizations.
  • Policy leaders including Harley Geiger, Director of Public Policy at Rapid7 tasked with spearheading cybersecurity progress within the federal government, explore motivations behind establishing coordinated disclosure policies as an industry-wide best practice at a regulatory level.
  • Director of the DoD’s Hack the Pentagon VDP Kris Johnson and Hack the Air Force winner Jack Cable (@cablej) delve into lessons learned from 10,000 resolved vulnerabilities and what it’s like hacking the DoD in the name of national security.
  • Evidence of the closing cybersecurity skills gap from the hackers who hacked their way into the leading security teams and paying it forward by supporting new emerging talent.

Over the past two years, Security@ has been an open forum for security leaders to gain a deeper understanding of how to successfully implement hacker-powered security across industries and safeguard against unknown internal and external threats. Previous speakers included security leaders from General Motors, Google, U.S. Department of Justice, Priceline, Yelp, and others. Security@ San Francisco past sessions can be viewed here. This year’s sessions will focus on the next phase of growth and adoption of hacker-powered security, providing attendees with concrete examples and advice from the front-line of defense.
