Why Don’t Companies Want to Hear About Their Security Problems?

One of these is HackerOne, a startup founded in 2012 to connect companies with the white hat (ethical) hackers who want to break sites and services in a good way. HackerOne does all the work of maintaining a bug submission platform, building a community of trusted hackers, and managing reward money. Companies just have to fund awards and be open to receiving feedback. (Disclosure: HackerOne's chief policy officer, Katie Moussouris, is a cybersecurity fellow at New America; New America is a partner with Slate and Arizona State University in Future Tense.)
