Despite the broad acceptance of CVD as a best practice in cybersecurity, many organizations have been slow to adopt it, and this event aims to touch on the positive impact that CVD has had on organizations who have employed it. At the same time, CVD still faces many challenges, including complex legislation and regulation, the misperception that it is a catch-all solution for cybersecurity problems, and misconceptions of security researchers’ motivations, and this event will also address those challenges and the best way forward to tackle them.

Join us as we convene government officials, private industry stakeholders and the security research community for an open, solutions-oriented dialog.
