We try to make our website safe, secure and accurate but, as technology changes and hackers get more advanced, the more risk there is.
There have been cases where people have acted in good faith in reporting website vulnerabilities but they have been punished for doing so.
To avoid this, the New Zealand Internet Task Force (NZITF) encourages the adoption of responsible disclosure policies.
We want to provide an environment where people who discover a problem with any of our websites are comfortable reporting it.
To encourage this we have a guide covering how we would like the reporting of vulnerabilities to occur so that we and the reporter can work together to keep our websites, data and information safe and secure.
