Vulnerability management has become a critical component of a holistic information security program, yet enterprises continue to be breached, in part due to a lack of response to known vulnerabilities, such as effective patching. The state of attacks is changing and vulnerability management must change with it. While many organizations understand that annual scans aren’t enough, they still struggle with prioritizing resources to address vulnerabilities.

In this SANS webcast, certified instructor Jake Williams will address today’s effective vulnerability management. Attendees will learn about:

  • Prioritizing the application of patches
  • Mapping security controls to assets
  • Threat modeling to understand attack chains
  • Gap analysis to prioritize new security controls
