Why Your Vulnerability Management Strategy Is Not Working – and What to Do About It
Everyone knows they need vulnerability management, but is your organization doing it right? The problem organizations face today is their “patch everything” mentality and this is leaving them more exposed and susceptible to data breaches.
Simple scanning data is inadequate in allowing organizations to understand their vulnerability landscape and prioritize using a risk-based approach to vulnerability management.
Tradition dictates scanning & patching, but the state of attacks is changing and vulnerability management must change with it.
In this paper, written by SANS Senior Instructor, Jake Williams we look at:
- Why vulnerability management solutions have not met expectations and how IT and security teams can better implement those solutions to maximize value
- How to deal with the resourcing constraints that all vulnerability management programs encounter
- How cyber threat intelligence enables teams to make data-driven decisions about prioritizing limited resources.
