6 Steps to Effective Vulnerability Management for Your Technology

6 Steps to Effective Vulnerability Management for Your Technology

Vulnerabilities in technology are an unfortunate reality, and with each new software or hardware update, there are often weaknesses in the code that hackers can exploit. Unfortunately, assessing and managing these vulnerabilities isn’t always a priority for organizations, which can lead to security breaches. In fact, it’s estimated that about 93% of corporate networks are susceptible to hacker penetration, with 61% of security vulnerabilities being over 5 years old. However, putting together an effective vulnerability management process can reduce your risk. The process starts with identifying all devices and software that need to be assessed, followed by a vulnerability assessment to scan systems for known vulnerabilities. Next, prioritize vulnerabilities by threat level and remediate them accordingly. Finally, document all activities and schedule regular vulnerability assessments to ensure ongoing network fortification. Let us help you get started with a vulnerability assessment to fortify your network against attacks.
