Vulnerability Disclosure Policy
About this policy
The security of our systems is a top priority and we take every care to keep them secure. Despite our efforts, there may still be vulnerabilities.
We are keen to engage with the security community. This policy allows security researchers to share their findings with us. If you think you have found a potential vulnerability in one of our systems, services or products, please tell us as quickly as possible.
We will not compensate you for finding potential or confirmed vulnerabilities, however we will credit you as the person who discovered the vulnerability unless you tell us not to.

- Any product or service developed and/or administered by Education Services Australia to which you have lawful access

How to report a vulnerability
