MSRC Report: Building a Safer More Trusted Internet through Information Sharing 2011

Microsoft has released a report that provides a 2011 update on the progress of key Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) initiatives that share information to foster deeper industry collaboration, increase community-based defenses, and better protect customers.

The threat from cybercrime continues to grow, and people want to feel safer online. But a safer online experience can only be pursued when customers, the industry and the security and privacy community work together.

The Microsoft Security Response Center (MSRC) seeks to promote broad industry collaboration, responsible information sharing and better community-based defenses, striving to deliver a safer online experience for computer users worldwide.

Over the past three years MSRC has operated key security-related programs that would collectively share more information with partners and customers;
– Microsoft Active Protections Program (MAPP)
– Microsoft Exploitability Index
– Microsoft Vulnerability Research (MSVR)
Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure (CVD)

With these programs, customers have increased access to more effective countermeasures and additional information to better evaluate risks.

This report highlights the progress of these programs and practices, for the first time including an update on the progress of CVD.
