Hacking, AppSec, and Bug Bounty newsletter
2017-05-03 | Mr. Greene’s message, Krypt.co, and who is thedarkoverlord?
Wednesday, May 3
Hello Wednesday. Make it a great day!
Uber’s Collin Greene has a message for you: Better understanding business risks make you a better security person. Key lesson: risk is relative and can be ignored, transferred, reduced (mitigated) or eliminated (remediate). The correct answer to risk is not always to eliminate it and it is our job to know the appropriate action given the many variables. Also, free tip from Scott Piper: Read Yahoo’s 2016 Form 10-K for detailed info on their multiple “Security Incidents”.

Epic tweetstorm for any dev’s out there…
As a senior dev, I disagree. Feedback from junior devs is critical to me. If they don't understand it, even if it's "correct", I rewrite. - @sarahmei

In time my perspective broadened and I recognized that the root cause of insecurity is both technical and organizational.
