Our civilization is going digital. That’s fantastic. Unfortunately, our software is not secure enough to carry a digital and connected civilization.

Lawfully Hacked

The best way to prevent getting hacked is to try to get hacked. Paradoxical as this may sound, evidence shows it is true. The worst data breaches the world has seen were with companies that did not invite external security researchers to report their findings. But by hunting for their security vulnerabilities, organizations can ensure the weak points are found and fixed before they are identified by criminals. Open sourcing security is the way.
