Vulnerability Assessment
Posted on Tuesday, July 4th, 2017 by
As many as 15,000 new vulnerabilities are discovered each year, with many affecting major software systems including web browsers, operating systems, and other applications. Vulnerabilities, including missing patches and misconfigured applications, expose weaknesses to attackers and open organizations to costly cyber-attacks. In order to secure their IT assets, organizations today must maintain an awareness of the vulnerabilities in their environment and respond quickly to mitigate potential threats. One way to do so is through regular vulnerability assessments, a process to identify and quantify the security vulnerabilities in an organization’s environment. A vulnerability assessment program provides organizations with the knowledge, awareness, and risk background necessary to understand threats to their environment and react accordingly.
