The CVE Program works to identify, define, and catalog publicly disclosed cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

It’s operated by the MITRE Corporation in collaboration with international stakeholders in the government, academic, and industrial sectors.

“Genetec becoming an authorized CVE Numbering Authority is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to strong cybersecurity practices. Being part of an international community that is relied upon to identify, catalog and publish vulnerabilities allows Genetec to communicate these vulnerabilities so they can be addressed swiftly. This provides our customers with greater assurance that their physical security solutions are protected and held to high cyber security standards,” said Christian Morin, CSO & Vice President of product engineering at Genetec Inc.

As a CVE Program partner Genetec is authorized to publish CVE records to communicate consistent descriptions of vulnerabilities. Making use of those standardized and publicly disclosed CVE records can result in a significant savings for time and costs the company said.
