How we raised $55,000 to support diversity in infosec at Black Hat 2018

August 16th, 2018   |     |  security and compliance, culture & news

Last week, we hosted our first ever Bug Bounty Bash at Black Hat 2018. 30 of the world’s greatest ethical hackers, including Security Advisor at Detectify, Frans Rosén, and co-founders of HackerOne, Michiel Prins and Jobert Abma, came together to hunt down any security vulnerabilities they could find in the OneLogin platform. Each vulnerability they uncovered was rewarded with a bounty - their prize for helping us make OneLogin better.

Thank you, Trevor Rappleye, of EventFilming for the photos.

What made this event extra special was that our hacker participants agreed to donate half of their winnings to the International Consortium of Minority Cybersecurity Professionals (ICMCP) and Queercon - nonprofits dedicated to promoting diversity in the infosec space.

Thanks to our generous participants, during the Queercon closing ceremonies on August 12, we presented each of these organizations with a $27,500 check!

President of Queercon, Jason Painter, and Executive Director of ICMCP, David Elcock, receive checks from OneLogin CSO, Justin Calmus at the Queercon closing ceremonies.

We at OneLogin would like to extend a very special thank you to all of our participants who selflessly donated their time and expertise to this event. Not only did you help us make OneLogin more secure, but you’ve also helped to make the infosec space more diverse and inclusive.
