The Army has 102 critical security gaps that it says it will fix immediately. The latest annual Hack the Army bug bounty event, where professional hackers help find weak spots in Defense Department websites, found 238 total cyber vulnerabilities.

  • Danelle Barrett, former deputy chief information officer of the Navy, said the use of vulnerability disclosure programs is now embedded into the security process of the Defense Department and is important for the entire government.
  • Barrett said the Hack the Army event presented “great news” as far as remediation and visibility and is a good way to incentivize “white hat” or ethical hacking.
  • Barrett said government needs help from industry to find solutions that will automate network checks and responses.
