Vulnerability management for small and midsize enterprises is becoming increasingly important due to the rising threat of cybersecurity attacks, emerging risks, and evolving regulations.
Vulnerability management requires a comprehensive process to continuously identify, analyze, classify, remediate, and report on security vulnerabilities. It requires a combination of trained security resources working closely with systems administrators, third-party vendors, and tools to prioritize remediation and mitigation.
Your company should at the very least have a vulnerability management process including the following:
- Regular scanning of network-attached systems, devices, and applications to identify new vulnerabilities.
- Evaluate vulnerabilities positives and determine the risk.
- Remediate the vulnerabilities found by priority based on severity and criticality of the impacted system. In the short term, mitigate the vulnerabilities as a quick solution while gathering the resources to remediate.
- Regularly report and review the reports to understand the security posture of your business technology and information systems. Consistent reporting is critical to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and effectively implement security controls.
