What is Responsible Disclosure?

Responsible Disclosure is a benefit from the knowledge of security researchers by providing them transparent rules for submitting vulnerabilities to your team with a responsible disclosure policy. Your team has been implementing development best practices and have yet to face a security breach, but in the off event a security researcher discovers a vulnerability, it’s important to clarify a process that allows them to safely report the issue to your team.

Why do you need it?

Occasionally a security researcher may discover a flaw in your app. This leaves the researcher responsible for reporting the vulnerability. An ethical hacker will privately report the breach to your team and allow your team a reasonable timeframe to fix the issue, but in the case they do not, they may publicize the exploit to alert the public. This scenario can lead to negative press and a scramble to fix the vulnerability.

responsible disclosure policy is the first step in helping protect your company from an attack or premature vulnerability release to the public.
