Gartner: The Essential Elements of Effective Vulnerability Management

Learn how to determine the appropriate vulnerability remediation SLAs for your organization.

“Implement a risk-based vulnerability approach that strategizes the teams’ effort and enables them to treat vulnerabilities that are relevant, exploitable and possess significant business risk.” –The Essential Elements of Effective Vulnerability Management, Gartner, 2020

The number of vulnerabilities discovered each year has dramatically increased over the past three years, and the attack surface has expanded well beyond the confines of traditional IT. As a result, security leaders have more vulnerabilities than they can manage.

Many organizations attempt to prioritize these vulnerabilities by  relying exclusively on CVSS (common vulnerability scoring system) scores. But this method has proven ineffective, leading security teams to waste the majority of their time chasing after the wrong issues while missing many of the vulnerabilities that pose the greatest risk to the business.

A risk-based approach to vulnerability management is necessary. It enables security teams to focus on the vulnerabilities and assets that matter most, so they can address the organization’s true business risk instead of wasting their valuable time on vulnerabilities that have a low likelihood of being exploited.

Read Gartner’s The Essential Elements of Effective Vulnerability Management to:

  • Learn the steps required for effective vulnerability management
  • Understand why asset criticality is essential to directing vulnerability management efforts
  • Gain insights into why business context is important for prioritizing remediation efforts
