Safaricom encourages ethical hacking of its services

Thursday 11 October 2018 | 16:15 CET | News
Kenyan operator Safaricom is encouraging ethical hacking and responsible disclosure of bugs or vulnerabilities found in any of its products and services, Business Daily reported. Its target groups are university and college students, innovation centres like iHub and iLab, cyber security forums such as Africa Hackon, ISACA and Hackathons. Through a partnership with HackerOne, hackers can submit bugs they may find in a confidential and responsible manner, and these will then be vetted and triaged by the HackerOne team independently.
