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
