CWE Board

The mission of the CWE Board is to set and promote the goals and objectives of the CWE Program to ensure the ongoing adoption, coverage, and quality of Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE™).

The Board operates according to the CWE Board Charter and the CWE Professional Code of Conduct. Members of the CWE Board include Technical Implementers that provide input and guidance regarding the creation, design, review, maintenance, and applications of CWE entries; Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who are domain experts in weakness and/or attack pattern fields and represent a significant constituency related to, or affected by, CWE; and Advocates who actively support and promote CWE throughout the community in a highly visible and responsible manner.

Through open and collaborative discussions, Board members provide critical input regarding domain coverage, coverage goals, operating structure, and strategic direction.
