The British fintech startup Revolut is recruiting a team of cybersecurity experts to identify IT vulnerabilities. This is reported by the Independent.
According to the CISO Paul Heffernan, hackers will analyze various threats on the darknet and apply them to the Revolut platform.
One of the responsibilities of this team is to come in and just hack all of our own systems for us. They will actually be continually testing our security and hacking into our own systems for us and using that knowledge to keep us secure.

It is expected that a team of cyber-specialists will be staffed within three months.
Revolut also plans to upgrade its own IT platform, abandoning unreliable banking infrastructure.
