Featured Initiative



To address concerns about security gaps across a growing number of connected devices, the Center for Cybersecurity Policy and Law’s Initiative brings together key technology stakeholders to identify needs and circumstances of the hardware ecosystem, possible gaps in disclosure policy and practice, and options for future improvements. The Initiative has released a new report to help hardware vendors minimize risks for end users.

The Initiative’s Report “Improving Hardware Component Vulnerability Disclosure,” details the security challenges specific to the hardware environment as well as recommendations for using the coordinated vulnerability disclosure (CVD) process to address known risks.
