    Following an attack that breached one of its servers, NordVPN is taking several steps in an effort to show customers that it can still provide secure access to the internet. Learn more:

    NordVPN is taking steps to ensure customers that it can stay true to its promise of providing "secure and private access to the internet" after admitting that an attacker breached one of its servers. To start with, its in-house team of penetration testers will now be working with cybersecurity firm VerSprite to conduct comprehensive penetration testing, intrusion handling and source code analysis. The firm will also help NordVPN form an independent cybersecurity advisory committee as part of their long-term partnership. 

    In an effort to find vulnerabilities before a bad actor does again, it's also launching a bug bounty program over the next few weeks. NordVPN also promises to undergo a complete a full-scale third-party independent security audit covering its hardware, software, backend architecture, backend source code and internal procedures in 2020.
