Develop a proactive cybersecurity framework that emphasizes threat detection and vulnerability management.
In cybersecurity, a vulnerability is a weakness that can be exploited by a threat actor, such as an attacker, to perform unauthorized actions within a computer system or network. A typical example is mistakes in software code that provide an attacker with direct access to a system or network until the software code is patched.
Exposure is the number of vulnerable systems or networks that attackers can access.
Risk is a measurement of future loss from a given scenario, such as a ransomware event, derived from probable frequency and probable magnitude of loss events. Avoiding loss is a fundamental reason for maintaining an enterprise vulnerability management program.
One of the many ways to help protect your business from unplanned downtime is to develop a vulnerability management program. These task management programs help your IT team with vulnerability identification, patch management, and optimizing your position against cyber-attacks.
