Security automation cannot replace the creativity of humans. In fact, 92% of ethical hackers say they can find vulnerabilities scanners can’t. For the past six years, we’ve been surveying
hackers to learn more about how they see the evolving security testing industry. We combine these insights with the world’s largest dataset of vulnerabilities to identify trends that inform our customers how to build an impactful security strategy.
This year, HackerOne introduced its Attack Resistance Management (ARM) approach that combines attack surface knowledge with the power of ethical hackers to give organizations a true security advantage and target the root causes of the attack resistance gap. The attack resistance gap is the gap between what organizations are able to protect and what they need to protect. The main factors contributing to this gap are incomplete knowledge of digital assets, insufficient testing, and a shortage of the right skills. In the past year, the hacking community has found over 65,000 customer vulnerabilities.
Reports for vulnerability types typically introduced by digital transformation have seen the most significant growth with misconfigurations growing by 150% and improper authorization by 45%.
In this year’s Hacker-Powered Security Report, we look at what drives the hacking community, what their focus is, and what they’re doing to secure customers.
