Last week, David Baker (Bugcrowd’s Chief Security Officer) released a blog post discussing why it’s important to understand researcher motivations in order to run a successful bug bounty program. Furthermore – to enable current and future customers to get a better handle on what drives security researchers at Bugcrowd – we released the Inside the Mind of a Hacker (version 2.0) report covering a broad range of metrics around who the Crowd is comprised of; including data on age, level of education, geographic location, and most importantly – what motivates us (and I use the term “us”, because I myself am a security researcher on Bugcrowd).
