Hack the Pentagon

Since 2016, HackerOne has partnered with the U.S. Department of Defense to defend their assets, starting with Hack the Pentagon‘s vulnerability disclosure program. Kris Johnson, Director of the VDP at the DoD, says “researchers are telling us what’s wrong with our systems. We have a ton of success stories.” That success has encouraged the DoD to proactively embrace crowdsourced security, saving $64 million and achieving nearly 800% ROI.

Hack the Army

In partnership with the U.S. Army, HackerOne designed a program that targeted operationally significant assets. The bug bounty program attracted nearly 400 hackers and surfaced about 120 vulnerabilities -- including a critical bug that allowed bad actors to access an internal DoD database via the public-facing goarmy.com.

In Their Words

“We saved more than $1M from this $150K investment—thus making the DoD more secure AND saving a boat load of money. It's not a small sum, but if we had gone through the normal process of hiring an outside firm to do a security audit and vulnerability assessment, which is what we usually do, it would have cost us more than $1 million.”
Secretary of Defense, Ash Carter (2016)
