Cybercriminals keep finding new ways to hack into computers and the data of their victims. Swiss Post’s IT security experts are, in turn, constantly working on new ways to improve the security of the company’s IT infrastructure. Bug bounty programmes are an effective way to identify and fix security issues quicker. The programmes invite hackers to check IT systems for any security vulnerabilities, and provide them with a reward for each one they identify. Swiss Post is set to go a step further as anyone will now be able to look for vulnerabilities, instead of just those invited to do so.
We’re all used to finding a collection note in our letter box. In most cases, it means we were out when the mail carrier called, and we’ll now have to go the post office to collect the tea, face cream or new clothes we recently ordered.
