Incident Response Team
Helping you protect your systems, smartphones, and tablets
Research In Motion (RIM) is committed to improving the security of its products and strives to identify and remove vulnerabilities before the product is released to market. However, software vulnerabilities remain a fact of life and the BlackBerry Security Incident Response Team (SIRT) is prepared to advise you about risks to you and the availability of software fixes.

RIM security updates
Helping to protect customers from security threats is the number one priority of the BlackBerry SIRT. This team provides security updates for publicly released, non-Beta BlackBerry products. The team also scores security issues using the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), and those identified as severe are given the highest level of priority.
Before the release of a security update, RIM build and test processes must first determine that the update is of the quality customers expect. The BlackBerry SIRT publishes security advisories and notices to inform you that updates or guidance are available, and provides the details you need to complete a tailored risk assessment.
