Recognition of faith in ethical hacking
Stijn Jans, CEO at Intigriti: “Many people still have a negative association with hacking, while you can use the creativity of ethical hackers very well to make the internet a safer place. At Intigriti we ensure online security through a crowd sourced security platform for computer experts. Our platform bundles specialists that can legally test the defenses of enlisted companies through hacking. The ‘hackers’ get paid for doing what they love, while companies know what to enhance about their security. A win win. I see this award as a recognition of our faith and I am extremely proud of our team, where we stand today and the many customers we are able to protect.”
