Prioritising Vulnerability Remediation in the Age of Threat Disclosure Overload

One of the biggest challenges faced by information security teams today is how to effectively prioritise their vulnerability remediation work. Knowing which vulnerabilities to address first remains a major difficulty for IT security teams.

FACT: 99.9% of the exploited vulnerabilities in 2014 had been disclosed more than a year earlier.

To clearly and precisely prioritise remediation work, infosec teams must correlate the steady stream of vulnerability disclosures against their organisation’s IT asset inventory, a connect-the-dots process that requires intense data analysis.
