Bug Hunter, Ken Pyle, will discuss how white-hat cybersecurity professionals go about discovering vulnerabilities and zero-day attacks.

About this event

Women in Cybersecurity Delaware Valley Affiliate, formerly known as Philadelphia Women in Cybersecurity, is pleased to announce our second event as part of the national WiCyS organization.

Having discovered and published a large number of critical software vulnerabilities in products by Cisco, Dell, Netgear, HP, and many others, our speaker, Ken Pyle, has an in-depth understanding of the art and discipline required of an elite, white-hat, cybersecurity professional. Join us as Ken discusses his experience with bug hunting, zero-day attacks, and the vulnerabilities found on the adopted and integrated technologies used on networked devices.

A Bug Hunter is a security researcher, or white-hat cybersecurity professional, who combs through the source-code of software searching for vulnerabilities to be exploited. When a vulnerability is found, the bug hunter collects information such as how to reproduce the vulnerability and reports it to the organization or person who created the original software. This way, the bug hunter helps companies find vulnerabilities and remediate them before hackers can take advantage of these software flaws.

Ken Pyle is a founding partner of CYBIR and a full-time faculty member with the cybersecurity degree programs at Chestnut Hill College. He has presented at numerous industry conferences such as DEFCON, Blackhat, Secureworld and more. He has found and registered several CVE zero-day attacks. Additionally, Ken is often cited as a subject matter expert in industry publications like Veracode and CyberScoop.
