CyAN Global Coalition to Protect Cyber Researchers – The Register coverage

“Typically, they find a flaw, then notify the vendor. And at that point they get a cease and desist or threatening letter…”

Last week, the Cybersecurity Advisors Network (CyAN)’s International VP Peter Coroneos spoke to The Register, a leading British technology news site, about the launch of our inclusive global coalition attempting to secure consistent legal immunities for bona fide zero day researchers.

The article discusses the aims of CyAN’s coalition and provides a valuable archive of threats made against researchers in order to demonstrate how pervasive the issue is.

Furthermore, the article draws attention to calls in the UK amongst infosec professionals and academics for the government to overhaul the 1990 Computer Misuse Act that is seen as a hindrance to credible threat intelligence research.
