Xylem’s Product Security Incident Response Team (PSIRT) manages the response to security vulnerabilities that pose a risk to Xylem fielded products.
Vulnerability Response and Disclosure
When reporting a vulnerability, please include the following information:
- Product name and version
- Description of the potential vulnerability
- Any special configuration required to reproduce the issue
- Step by step instructions to reproduce the issue
- Proof of concept or exploit code, if available
- Potential Impact
- Any other relevant information
Xylem PSIRT will acknowledge receipt of the reported potential vulnerability and begin triage. If the reported vulnerability is determined to be valid, a risk assessment will be performed. The risk assessment will take into account the following:
- Technical Severity (CVSS Rating)
- Business Impact
- Product Deployment
A remediation plan will then be determined based on the risk of the vulnerability. Remediation plans can include patches, updates, configuration changes, or implementing compensating controls.
Once the remediation plan is available, Xylem PSIRT will coordinate the appropriate disclosure. Disclosures can include a combination of, but are not limited to, direct customer notification, publishing of a Xylem Product Security Advisory on www.xylem.com/security , Coordinated Vulnerability Disclosure through DHS CISA.
