Chinese tech giant Huawei has asked some of the world’s best phone hackers to a secret meeting in Munich later this month as the company tries to curry favor with global governments.
Sources with knowledge of the November 16 meeting said Huawei will privately present its new bug bounty program, which would allow researchers to get financial rewards for submitting security vulnerabilities.
This is a good example of a company becoming more open and transparent on security to build trust. A public Bug Bounty program is the best way to show consumers that you are serious about security. There is no stronger message than saying: if you think there is a security vulnerability, here is how to report it, and we will reward you for your effort.
