Access HackerOne's fourth Hacker-Powered Security Report

Hackers – your front line defence.

28 September 2020 - GP Bullhound’s investment in HackerOne has been an important part of our strategy to support the best technology entrepreneurs, with a focus on growth-stage businesses in the Software industry, and the rising need for cybersecurity.

In its fourth annual Hacker Powered Security Report, HackerOne takes an essential, in-depth look at the digital security ecosystem amid the Covid-19 pandemic. With large-scale data breaches up by an astonishing 273% in early 2020, compared with 2019, and nearly 64% of global security leaders seeing an increased risk of a breach, there is an urgent need for change as security leaders fight the outbreak of cybercrime with fewer resources.

One thing is certain: “hacker-powered security is the future of cybersecurity – and that future is here.”
