DIB-VDP Historical Pilot

The Defense Industrial Base Vulnerability Disclosure Program (DIB-VDP) Pilot is a 12-month voluntary event established collaboratively by DC3’s DoD Defense Industrial Base Collaborative Information Sharing Environment (DCISE), DoD Vulnerability Disclosure Program (DoD VDP), and the Defense Counterintelligence and Security Agency (DCSA).

The DIB-VDP Pilot was born out of the desire to bring the lessons learned by the DoD VDP to DIB companies based on the strong recommendation from Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (SEI) DIB-VDP Feasibility Study.
