Highly qualified experts, known as ethical hackers, will participate in advertised initiatives subject to defined conditions, and report potential security vulnerabilities to Porsche – before they can be exploited. “Quality and safety are part of Porsche’s DNA. We attach great importance to the security of our digital services,” says Mattias Ulbrich, CEO of Porsche Digital GmbH and CIO of Porsche AG.
Comprehensive security measures
The Porsche bug bounty programme supplements the services rendered by the global cybersecurity team, and will be implemented by the experts from the Porsche //DigitalFamily. The programme relies on the creativity and swarm intelligence of the global security community. The initiatives are advertised on established bug bounty platforms. If participants report an actual security vulnerability, they receive a financial reward.
“The protection of customer, employee and company data has utmost priority for Porsche. Participating in bug bounty programmes is the next logical step in our comprehensive security measures,” says Jörg Möbes, Director of Information Security and Chief Information Security Officer at Porsche AG.
