Will Expansion of the Vulnerabilities Equities Process (VEP) Strengthen National Security and Coalition Collaboration?

We now turn our focus to a recommendation made by the Council on Foreign Relations Independent Task Force on Cybersecurity calling for the international expansion of the Vulnerabilities Equities Process (VEP). Our analysis is also based on a recent Rand Report which is the impressive Ph. D. dissertation by Lindsey Polley – a former Defense & Policy Researcher at the RAND Corporation now in the private sector.

For the uninitiated, welcome to the complexities and mission-critical implications of the VEP. For the VEP experts amongst us, we focus on the forward-thinking implications of an expansion of the VEP to coalition partners.
