IBM Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT)

IBM PSIRT is the centralized process through which IBM customers, security researchers, industry groups, government organizations, or vendors report potential IBM security vulnerabilities.

A global team manages the receipt, investigation and internal coordination of security vulnerability information related to all IBM products and websites. This team then coordinates with each individual IBM product and solution team across the world to investigate, and if needed, identify the appropriate response plan. Maintaining communication between all involved parties, both internal and external, is a key component of IBM's vulnerability response process.
