Charles Yarbrough

Senior Engineer, Software Engineering Institute

With over 30 years in the IT industry and 12 years in information security roles, I now help guide and support the Department of Defense Vulnerability Disclosure Program (VDP) at the Defense Cyber Crime Center (DC3). This highly successful program was born out of the 2016 Hack the Pentagon effort, and acts as the DoD's 'front door' between cybersecurity researchers and the DoD Enterprise IT shop. My role is to assist the DoD to design and grow the program to discover, track, mitigate, and close vulnerabilities on publicly-available DoD resources.
