The Verizon Enterprise Risk and Incident Sharing (VERIS) is a framework designed to provide a common language for describing security incidents in a structured and repeatable manner. It takes the narrative of “who did what to what or whom with what result” and translates it into organized data. It stores case data and other relevant details collected by Verizon on data security breaches. The information collected using VERIS is then submitted to members of Verizon's RISK Intelligence team for further validation and analysis. During the aggregation process, information regarding the identity of breach victims is removed from the repository of case data.
