Human-Powered Security for the Auto Industry

HackerOne runs cybersecurity programs with 4 of the top 10 global car manufacturers—uncovering hidden vulnerabilities before they become catastrophic break-downs.

Driving automotive cybersecurity forward

Connected cars, with their complex networks and systems, are prime targets for cybercriminals. HackerOne’s offensive security approach—including code security audits, bug bounties, penetration tests, and more—is designed to uncover hidden vulnerabilities before they lead to catastrophic breakdowns.

  • Continuous protection: Focusing on critical components like infotainment systems, we help identify and address vulnerabilities that could compromise vehicle safety—from development through deployment and beyond.
  • On-demand expertise: Tap into the expertise of nearly 2 million skilled security researchers whenever you need it..
  • Risk-ranking & triage: Our Attack Resistance Platform proactively pinpoints vulnerabilities in intricate vehicle systems, guiding you on which ones to tackle first—and how to resolve them effectively.
We’re inviting highly qualified technical experts known as ethical hackers to take on the challenge of testing the security of our digital products and services. Bug bounty programmes are common practice across the tech industry, and our own participation is the next logical step for us as we bolster our security measures.
