Running a Threat Based Vulnerability Management Program
Security organizations have no problem finding vulnerabilities on enterprise networks – the volume of security data is constantly growing. The greater challenge is sifting through this data to determine which of these vulnerabilities pose the greatest risk to the business, and prioritizing remediation efforts. Using available threat data and performing attack path analysis enables a strategic, threat-based approach to vulnerability management and remediation.
