Rapid7 Public Policy

消费者、企业和政府越来越依赖相互关联的复杂技术. 使社会能够安全地从这一进步中获益,需要强有力的网络安全政策, practices, and awareness. To advance this cause, Rapid7 works with governments, companies, non-profits, and experts to shape policies, standards, and legislation that benefit consumers and defend responsible cybersecurity practitioners.

Our Policy Work

Computer Access Laws

限制计算机访问和使用的法律应该谨慎地平衡打击网络犯罪的需要与支持安全研究的价值, innovation, and other legitimate activity.


Independent security research is valuable for advancing cybersecurity, 但《十大赌博正规信誉网址》(CFAA)对有益的研究和恶意黑客行为几乎没有区别. 我们支持负责任的CFAA改革和澄清,以保护安全研究人员和互联网用户免受过于宽泛的责任.

UK Computer Misuse Act

The UK's Computer Misuse Act (CMA) imperils the sharing of defensive security tools, provides no acknowledgement of the importance of good faith security research, and fails to define what constitutes authorization for access to systems. Rapid7支持合理的改革,澄清这些问题,在不为滥用创造机会的情况下推进网络安全.
