Leveraging a Risk-Based Approach to Vulnerability Management

Presented by

Maxine Holt and Jason Farmer

About this talk

Hear from security industry expert from Ovum on moving from silos to collaboration across security and IT teams. For years organizations have leveraged traditional Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) to define success in their Vulnerability Management programs. Unfortunately, this often pitts the security team, who drives the assignment of work, against the overloaded operations team, who performs the work, against one another. The transition to a risk-based approach offers many benefits including more effective communications, a shared understanding of priorities, and a unified sense of purpose. These benefits enable security and operations teams to truly work together to improve the effectiveness of your Vulnerability Management program.
