Hello CybersecurityUW,

We have another exciting meeting ready for you! On Thursday February 29th, in Computer Science 1240, from 5:30 - 7:00 we are hosting a top bug bounty hunter from Bugcrowd! They will also be providing pizza so keep reading!

Bug bounties are a way for hackers and cybersecurity professionals to use their skills to report on vulnerabilities that they see in company’s applications. They are legal, able to be done independently, and can have large payouts. Bugcrowd is a company that helps organize bug bounties, and one of their top hackers @cinzinga will be coming to share stories, give advice, and answer any questions you might have.

We hope to see you there!

Best, Cybersecurity UW Leadership Team
