Cyber-attacks are serious everyday threats for all organisations that connected to the internet and rely on IT to facilitate their business. The security of those businesses depends on their understanding of the threats and vulnerabilities that could lead to a breach in their defences, and allow access to information systems and data. Due to the high complexity of IT-networks organizations often struggle to effectively detect dangerous vulnerabilities in time, or understand the potential impact of those exploits.
As highlighted in this statement made by a CIO of large financial services organisation, often the sheer number of vulnerabilities that organizations have to manage represents a huge challenge.
“We have approximately 6,000 vulnerabilities in our applications. Every year we fix about 1,000 and we find another 1,000. The question is: are we finding and fixing the right ones?”
How can organisations prioritise their limited resources to identify and address the most urgent vulnerabilities and threats to their crown jewel assets?
