Transatlantic Workshop on Government Hacking and Vulnerability Management
Experts from the Transatlantic Cyber Forum on "Encryption Policies & Government Hacking" came together in Berlin from June 20th-21st for the group’s second in-person workshop. The first in-person meeting took place July 12th-13th, 2017, in Washington, D.C.
The group is comprised of experts from civil society, academia, and the private sector from both Germany and the United States. The workshop’s discussions focused on key debates emerging from the group’s online collaborative work, namely specifics of recommendations for a legal framework for government hacking, as well as the nuances of proposed parameters for government vulnerability assessment and management.
The group will continue to collaborate online in the coming weeks, after which papers on "Minimum Standards for Government Hacking" and "Good Practices for Government Vulnerability Assessment and Management" will be made ready for sharing and discussion.
The workshop was organised and moderated by Sven Herpig and Julia Schuetze.
