How a vulnerability management program can provide IT security

Vulnerability management tools are an essential component of your commitment to proactively identifying vulnerability and security risks for your business, so having a vulnerability management program is vital.

But what is vulnerability management? And, how can it provide a higher level of IT security for you and your business interests? Let’s take a closer look.

Understanding vulnerability management

Vulnerability management incorporates a regular regimen of ferreting out, organizing and addressing software vulnerabilities that could otherwise put your network security at risk. Through a vulnerability management process, you can single out vulnerabilities and assess the risks of each, then mitigate those risks systematically. It is a vital part of maintaining computer and network security.

Vulnerability management provides a continuous risk overview with four high level oversight processes, including:

  1. Discovery
  2. Reporting
  3. Prioritization
  4. Response

For banks and credit unions, having a full-scale vulnerability management program in place is required by examiners. For other regulated and non-regulated businesses, having vulnerability management tools in place is a critical step toward protecting the safety and security of your business.
