Anything that touches a network has the possibility to become vulnerable. This makes vulnerability assessment and management increasingly crucial to ensure the safety, security and availability of your critical data.
“As hardware continues to become more powerful and software continues to become more complex, it becomes more and more difficult to remove any possible ways that they can impact an organization,” says Thomas Jefferies, Security Architect at iVision.
What vulnerabilities does your organization face?
It’s important to note that there is no one-size-fits-all solution for assessing and managing every organization’s vulnerabilities. You need to know what data you’re protecting, how people might try to access it and then develop a plan to effectively close those gaps. This requires knowledge outside of typical infrastructure and special consideration to fit each organization’s specific needs.
“Gartner last year made a statement that 99% of the vulnerabilities exploited by the end of 2020 will continue to be the ones known by security and IT professionals,” says Eric Aslaksen, CTO of iVision.
We often hear about the times that organizations have failed to address and remedy their vulnerabilities, but it is achievable for your organization to become a success story by implementing these best practices.
