BT Responsible Disclosure Policy
This document contains a set of guidelines regarding the process of responsible disclosure which is defined in the ISO / IEC 29147 as a process through which vendors and vulnerability finders may work cooperatively in finding solutions that reduce the risks associated with a vulnerability.
