Coordinated vulnerability programs are worthless if companies don’t provide enough personnel and resources to monitor and address bug reports, the software trade group BSA said in a white paper published Tuesday. Any company setting up a CVD program should “develop governance structures to assign personnel with clear lines of responsibility, establish a risk-based mechanism for prioritizing the remediation of vulnerabilities, and provide clear guidance about how and when to disclose vulnerability information to external stakeholders,” the group said.

Its members are among the world’s most innovative companies, creating software solutions that help businesses of all sizes in every part of the economy to modernize and grow.
