 JALANDHAR: Facebook and Google have collaborated in organizing two-day Security Conference ‘BountyCon’ in Singapore, where BCA (Hons) 2nd Year 

student Rohit Kumar of Lovely Professional University (LPU) has been invited to participate. The focus of the conference is on learning and developing practical skills for discovering and reporting high-quality vulnerabilities. Scheduled to take place on March 30 and 31, 2019 at Facebook Head Quarter in Singapore, Rohit is fully funded with all air-fare and accommodations to attend the event conveniently. Event consists of technology discussions and industry networking opportunities.

 

Rohit is one among some other fortunate students from the Asia Pacific region to get a free invitation. Security Program Manager at Facebook (US) Zach Turk has forwarded in a letter that Rohit will be served as an invited guest of ‘Facebook’ during the conference, to be held at Ibis Hotel, Macpherson Road, Singapore. Hailing from a very small village Mokama in district Patna of Bihar State, Rohit has been nursing a special liking for computer skills right from his 5th class; however, no one could understand his passion. He shares that ultimately he joined LPU BCA program, coming far away from his home. Here at LPU, Rohit got an extended vent to his computational passion and established a strong place in the security researchers’ world in just two years’ span. 

 

An Ethical Hacker to the core and a start-up enthusiast too, Rohit has earned many thousands of US Dollars through his unique computing skills. At LPU, Rohit has learnt to be an illustrious entrepreneur instead of being a servant to somebody else. Presently, Rohit is also running two start-ups at LPU, one of which is incubated from world’s number 1 startup incubator and investor group-‘YCombinator’. Under the continuing guidance of his mentors at LPU School of Computer Applications, Dr Prof Ashwani Tiwari and Prof Manikant Roy, Rohit now wants to lead many groups of LPU students for innovative start-ups at LPU Campus. Rohit also informs that prior to this he was also invited at 1st China-India Mobile Phone Summit. Illustrative, Rohit is on the foot-prints of his renowned seniors at LPU including Bibin Babu, Rahul Tyagi, Nipun Jaiswal, Khageshwar Izardar and others, all of whom are names in their respective computer oriented domains.

 

Worth mentioning, Singapore conference is to support the growth of the security research community. At this, students with university-level knowledge of security concepts and interest in bug bounty programs and other areas of security research are invited. All of them get opportunity to learn from some of the top bug hunters from Facebook's and Google’s bug bounty programs. Students also participate in a live hacking event, and hear directly from top engineers how to discover and report security improvements on the internet's largest platforms.

 

In fact, founded in 2004, Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.
