I am writting an assignment for Uni, and have chosen the topic:
"To win the fight against e-crime, partnerships are not only needed between law enforcement and the private sector, but also with Hackers."
Obviously (IMO) the answer is the question. But, can anyone detail some specific 'employ a hacker' policies that worked or that did not work? Preferably in spectacular fashion.
If there are any employers of 'White-hats' reading this, could you please give a quick explanation of why the decision was made to employ a 'Hacker' and what, if any, precautions were taken to sooth the concerns of the 'powers that be'.
How well do the IT-sec professionals and the Hackers work together? Do their skills compliment or clash?
Opinions and anecdotes are appreciated and expected.
