In today’s information age, to simply say you have business security from an IT support team is no longer sufficient and severely understated. Attacks on information systems and against business’ proprietary Information occur on a 24/7 basis, so without a full on vulnerability management program as a core part of your IT and security team you may be risking your company’s data. According to SANS Critical Security Controls , a Vulnerability Management Service (VMS) is no longer an option but a critical requirement. To directly quote SANS, “The [security] Controls take the best-in-class threat data and transform it into actionable guidance to improve individual and collective security in cyberspace. Too often in cybersecurity, it seems the “bad guys” are better organized and collaborate more closely than the “good guys.” The Controls provide a means to turn that around.” Sounds like a doomsday prophecy, but we’re here to walk you through Vulnerability Management (VM).
