Edwin van Andel on Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure and NIS2
“I don’t have much with policies or regulations. I am a hacker!”,- says our CTO, Edwin van Andel.
We finally chased him down to share a few words about Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD) and the new Network and Information Security directive (NIS2)! And spoiler alert - apparently, this is a commercial blog, so hackers, there is nothing here for you.
But for the people who would like to know more about CVD milestones in the Netherlands, read on!
In order for hackers to do what they are doing best - helping you be more secure online, the presence of policies and guidelines is vital. These create a safe harbour for hackers while they are helping and protecting you!
Fortunately, a few years ago, the Responsible Disclosure policy was introduced, which later on was adapted to the Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure policy (CVD). And now, its importance is gaining momentum due to the recent publication of the new directive NIS2.
