Data breaches are nowadays a common factor risk but there are ways to reduce the risk. Know your assets and get on top of your infrastructure, even if you have Signature-Based Defences and Content-Based Protection you still need to work with updating and patching your systems.

Data breaches are nowadays a common factor risk but there are ways to reduce the risk.

Know your assets and get on top of your infrastructure, even if you have Signature-Based Defences and Content-Based Protection you still need to work with updating and patching your systems.

If you do not work with Vulnerability Management it only makes an attack easier to execute and makes your job as a defender way more difficult, time-consuming and inefficient.

There are many models for structuring IT security and Operations Teams but the most aware companies recognize the need to integrate these two groups. Hereby structuring them to provide both proactive and reactive security functions that map the possible attacks.

If you are using Continuously Vulnerability Scanning with alerting to the IT Security Incident Team you then bridge the gap between Operations and IT Security. Furthermore, this is a fantastic way to measure IT Security, one way of actually presenting and improving development in IT Security.

All statistics show that most of the breaches are made with already known vulnerabilities. By maintaining a solid Vulnerability Management Program overall risk can be drastically reduced. The programme includes; Discovery Scan, Target Assessment, Vulnerability Scanning, Remediation, and Control Scan, in an endless process which will actually help you against cyber-attacks.

Security and IT operations teams should focus on the vulnerabilities, attackers are actually using. This is more cost-effective than advanced threat protection (ATP).

You can with the help of the right tools simply develop a fully functional Vulnerability Management process in which you will be on top of your risks to be breached!
