For 1) a CSO out there wondering if it is wise to spend so many dollars, and 2) a security researcher who wonders if such a program is enough, I can add the organizational budget perspective:1) Yes, $2M is very reasonable compared to the security value received. You could easily spend way more than that on commercial tools or services for less payback.2) Before setting up such a program, a well-staffed internal team has to already be in place, because it is better to discover such problems internally and because very skilled people are needed to triage and act on the diverse reports that come in. The cost of that staff is way more than the award program, and hard to recruit. But top reporters are frequently top candidates.Eric Grosse, VP Security & Privacy Engineering, Google
To the same CSO Mr Grosse was talking about: as an end user, I find this model attractive. I makes me feel secure to know goldminers around me indirectly work for my benefit and does have an influence on choosing my email/mobile/IM/cloud provider.Thanks guys!
Google Thank You... Innovators Look like the bad guys...Quite the opposite: The "bad" guys are hiding in the weeds.
