Global Cyber Security Center promotes the "Italian Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure Manifesto" a cooperation mechanism between organizations and the experts of cyber security community to a "coordinated" and "Responsible" discover of technological vulnerabilities. Adopting this approach, an expert can responsibly report (in accordance with the responsible disclosure policy) report vulnerabilities directly to the owner of the information system affected, to provide the organization the opportunity to diagnose and remedy the vulnerability before detailed information is disclosed to third parties or the public.
