With Synack Red Team members Devesh Bhatt and Michael “Hughesey” Hughes

Security has changed over the years, and so has ethical hacking. Who better to discuss ethical hacking than one of Synack’s first hackers and one of its most recent award winners? 

They are Michael “Hughesey” Hughes, a Road2Tokyo Grand Champion (Team Australia) and Devesh Bhatt (Team India), one of our first-ever SRT members. We got them together to chat about all things Ages of Hacking. For fun, we also added a game show element into the mix before asking them for their security predictions for the next year. Who doesn’t want to know what’s in store for 2021? 

Our take on the Ages of Hacking is sure to be a fun stroll down memory lane into the earlier years of ethical hacking. For those looking to break into the field, watch our video for a behind the scenes look at what it takes to be a Synack Red Team member. Here at Synack, we’ve moved beyond traditional hacking by reinventing it with additional technology, control, and insight available in our on-demand Crowdsourced Security Platform.
