This week on The New Stack Context we talk with CircleCI CEO Jim Rose about a three-part series of posts he just wrote for The New Stack about the metrics that the company has found are useful for measuring an organization’s DevOps performance. The series is full of lots of data and graphics to help explain some standard metrics like mainline branch stability, deploy time and deploy frequency. Rose spoke to us about the report CircleCI put together, how they came up with those metrics, and how they can be useful for DevOps teams.

On this week's episode, TNS security correspondent Lucian Constantin joins us to talk about how companies can and should handle security reports. His latest story on this subject is based on a recent survey of 1,700 bug bounty participants on HackerOne. The survey revealed that one in four ethical hackers have had cases where they eventually gave up on reporting vulnerabilities because the affected vendors didn't respond to the issues. And this wasn't because of a lack of trying to contact those organizations. Constantin explained how your company sets up a good vulnerability reporting policy so you’ll learn about vulnerabilities from ethical hackers first, before customer data end up for sale on the underground market.
