Yesterday, the Australian Financial Review, one of Australia’s most respected business-focused newspapers, covered the launch of the Cybersecurity Advisors Network (CyAN)’s inclusive global coalition to work towards securing internationally consistent legal immunities for bona fide zero day researchers.
CyAN member Edward Farrel is one such researcher who discussed his experience with the AFR of being silenced by legal threats after responsibly disclosing serious security flaws in Australia.
Edward is not alone in his experience, however. Bona fide zero day researchers face similar legal threats the world over for trying to improve the health of our digital environment.
If you or your organisation are willing to join our efforts, please contact us.
