VERIS Community Incident Reporting
PEOPLE OF EARTH – The VERIS Community Application is out: Announcement here: http://bit.ly/cDAUhy Website here: http://bit.ly/9dZwEJ From Wade’s announcement:
If the VERIS framework describes what information should be shared, the VERIS application provides how to actually share it. Anyone wishing to classify and report an incident can do so responsibly and anonymously using the application. In taking the time to submit an incident, users directly contribute to the collective knowledge of the community AND will receive a useful “thank you” for their efforts. Upon submission, the application generates a report that compares the incident to others in the VERIS dataset along numerous metrics. These comparative analytics can be used by the submitter in whatever manner they choose; we hope it helps to better plan for an avoid similar incidents in the future.
Information submitted via VERIS will be shared with the community (that’s the point, right?). As the dataset grows, we will begin to roll out additional reports, analyses, portals, etc all having the goal of giving you access to the information you’ve provided. This is one of the reasons that ICSA Labs is hosting and participating in the VERIS application. They have over 20 years of experience facilitating collaboration and information sharing within the security community and the VERIS project will benefit from that legacy.
