Once a vulnerability becomes known to cybercriminals, the race is on for vendors to create a patch before it is exploited. And with the regular use of exploits in attacks and threats like the WannaCry ransomware using a vulnerability, getting the win has never been so crucial. In this session, we will cover the bug bounty marketplace, including the different types of markets available to vulnerability researchers. We will review how research, including that of Trend Micro Research, can benefit organizations through responsible disclosure and pre-disclosed filters to virtually patch vulnerabilities. Attendees will receive ideas on how best to minimize the risk of becoming infected and best practices for organizations and their employees. When you can prepare for, withstand, and rapidly recover from threats, you’re free to go further and do more.
