About this talk

The State of Vulnerability Remediation In this webinar hosted by The Cyentia Institute and SecurityScorecard, Wade Baker, PhD, Co-founder of The Cyentia Institute, and Greg Petropoulos, PhD Director of Data Science at SecurityScorecard will be discussing the current state of vulnerability remediation in a multitude of sectors ranging from the financial sector to the manufacturing sector. The joint research effort measured the speed of vulnerability remediation from 2019 - 2022 and revealed only 60% of organizations have improved their security posture over the last three years. Join us to learn: 1) The importance of having a solidified vulnerability remediation plan in place before vulnerabilities present themselves. 2) Despite a 15-fold increase in exploitation activity for vulnerabilities with published exploit code, they saw little evidence that organizations fix exploited flaws faster. 3) It typically takes organizations about a year to remediate half of the vulnerabilities in internet-facing infrastructure. 4) The significance of ongoing monitoring by a security ratings firm to prioritize vulnerability remediation and how this can help to maintain the strength of an organization's security posture.
