Actionable steps can help you secure your network.
Security vulnerabilities are a large concern for any organization. Maintaining the security of your IT infrastructure has to be one of your main priorities.
If attackers are able to penetrate your organization’s systems, they can take advantage of resources, steal data, or deny access to your usual operations – causing huge problems for your business.
Without proper vulnerability response management in place, you’re leaving your doors and windows wide open for attackers to enter your network. It can be easy for certain vulnerabilities to be overlooked, but that makes it even more important to have a solid security foundation.
Securing the network is a team effort and could fail for many reasons, including inadequate vision and strategy, lack of visibility into vulnerabilities, and poor communication. Expectations need to be clear from the very beginning.
Vulnerability response programs can provide a cushion in case an attack does occur – shortening its lifespan as much as possible. Such programs also can help you prove you did your prevention due diligence if you do end up having to recover from an attack.
Here are three steps that, if executed properly, can help transform how your organization can tackle vulnerabilities effectively.
