Coordinated vulnerability policy
The Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD) process is a collaborative approach to handling the disclosure of security vulnerabilities. The purpose of a Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure is to establish a framework for communication and collaboration between E-Scopics, its users, security researchers, and other stakeholders when a security vulnerability is identified in one of E-Scopics products.
E-Scopics recognizes the importance of addressing cybersecurity risks in medical devices to ensure patient safety and the integrity of its products. A Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure process helps facilitate responsible reporting and handling of security vulnerabilities in a way that minimizes the potential risks to patients.
