About Luta Security

Luta Security is transforming how governments and large organizations manage their people, processes, and technology to improve bug bounty programs, multiparty supply chain vulnerability coordination, and advance their overall security. During our Vulnerability Coordination Maturity Model assessments, we help identify and address gaps in key areas to improve process maturity and operational capacity to determine what actions are needed to enhance your organization's security, including which strategies and solutions make sense today and in the future.

Luta Security advises organizations across all phases of vulnerability coordination. Whether your organization is just getting started, or if you have already launched a vulnerability disclosure or bug bounty program, we can help your organization achieve its security goals, including complying with ISO 29147, 30111, and 27304.
