The Truth About Vulnerability Management: Compliance Checkbox or Real Protection?

Vulnerability management is one of the cyber security processes that organizations use to find and mitigate risks; yet vulnerability scanning can disrupt network operations, and doesn’t integrate knowledge of network access paths or existing security controls.  In fact, recent research shows that many cyber security teams deploy a ‘round robin’ approach to scanning – only scanning portions of the network on weekly, monthly or even quarterly intervals.

In order to effectively reduce attack vectors, comply with continuous monitoring requirements, and gain network visibility, organizations need to manage their vulnerabilities and associated risks on a continuous basis. This is required in order to match or exceed the daily rate of attacks. Why bother to assess your risks every 90 days, if you are attacked daily, given your frequently changing infrastructure?

The session will tackle vulnerability management strategies and best practices to:
• Ensure that vulnerability data is current and accurate;
• Eliminate data overload with risk-based vulnerability prioritization;
• Integrate remediation with actionable fixes; and
• Make vulnerability management an essential asset to reduce risk.

This session includes survey data, vulnerability research, case studies, and best practices – ideal for cyber security practitioners who are looking to vulnerability management to eliminate attack vectors and reduce risk levels.
