CVE Board

The CVE Board includes numerous cybersecurity-related organizations including commercial security tool vendors, academia, research institutions, government departments and agencies, and other prominent security experts, as well as end-users of vulnerability information. Through open and collaborative discussions, the Board provides critical input regarding the data sources, product coverage, coverage goals, operating structure, and strategic direction of the CVE program.

The Board operates per the CVE Board Charter, and Board roles and tasks vary by member. New members may be nominated per the Charter. All Board Meetings and Board Email List Discussions are archived for the community.

The Board was created in 1999. It ensures that CVE serves the community and public interest.
