Applying to join the CVD Panel of Experts

Applications to join the GSMA Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD) Panel of Experts have now closed (Spring 2021). Keep an eye out for future opportunities to apply.

The GSMA CVD Panel of Experts (PoE) is the group of subject matter experts from GSMA Operator, Associate and Rapporteur members who assess and consider options for remediation of vulnerabilities submitted to GSMA. PoE activities include technical analysis, assessing the impact of submission, suggesting remediation options and contributing to advisories relating to the vulnerability. They also review the GSMA CVD Programme.

The GSMA CVD scope is security vulnerabilities that impact the mobile industry, primarily open standards based technologies. We therefore work with a broad cross-section of the industry to consider and develop remediations for vulnerabilities which are submitted to us.

Benefits for individuals joining the CVD Panel of Experts include:

  • gaining professional fulfilment from supporting the whole mobile industry
  • the opportunity to consider and develop remediating and mitigating actions for interesting and varied mobile security vulnerabilities
  • insight to coordinated vulnerability disclosure

Individuals wishing to apply to join the CVD Panel of Experts need to be able to commit to support the industry programme, read and understand how the GSMA CVD Programme works and in particular the role of the CVD Panel of Experts in this, and have the backing of their employer to allow them to take part. Successful applicants are required to join a training e-meeting before taking part in discussions about CVD submissions.
