Technology vulnerabilities are an unfortunate side effect of innovation. When software companies push new updates, there are often weaknesses in the code. Hackers exploit these. 

Software makers then address the vulnerabilities with a security patch. The cycle continues with each new software or hardware update. 

61% of security vulnerabilities in corporate networks are over 5 years old. 

Here are 6 steps to effective vulnerability management:

Step 1: Identify Your Assets 

Step 2: Perform a Vulnerability Assessment 

Step 3: Prioritize Vulnerabilities by Threat Level 

Step 4: Remediate Vulnerabilities 

Step 5: Document Activities 

Step 6: Schedule Your Next Vulnerability Assessment Scan
