The impact of the pandemic has left security teams and CISOs with a multitude of security challenges to overcome. Chief among these responsibilities include closing security gaps within critical infrastructure and patching vulnerabilities as necessary. Given that the number of security vulnerabilities reached a record high for a fourth year in a row in 2020, security professionals are presented with a significant task if they hope to meet the growing demands that come with remediating high-risk vulnerabilities to prevent their organization from being attacked.
To alleviate the strain, and to increase efficiency and remediation speed, security teams should be adopting a risk-based vulnerability management (RBVM) approach to facilitate business enablement while reducing the overall risk posture. The effectiveness of this strategy is why Gartner has named RBVM as a top security project for security and risk management leaders in 2021. To understand this better, here is some practical advice on how best to leverage threat intelligence for vulnerability prioritization and tame the CVE chaos.
