Prioritization to Prediction Volume 1: Analyzing Vulnerability Remediation Strategies
Let’s acknowledge one truth right from the beginning: being a cyber security professional in today’s environment is challenging.
The pressure to digitally transform businesses, coupled with a tech stack of ever increasing complexity have created such a deluge of data that it is simply impossible for any organization to remediate every vulnerability and ensure 100% coverage of its attack surface.
Effective remediation depends on quickly determining which vulnerabilities warrant action and which of those have highest priority, but prioritization remains one of the biggest challenges in vulnerability management. For the first time, Kenna Security and the Cyentia Institute took a quantitative look at the effectiveness of common remediation strategies and used that data as a baseline to compare against a cutting-edge predictive model.
The results of this research are detailed in the new report, Prioritization To Prediction: Analyzing Vulnerability Remediation Strategies.
