How Does Managing Your Vulnerabilities Benefit You?

How Does Vulnerability Management Benefit You?

Every organization has vulnerabilities. Some may be critical while others are inherent to the industry. Unfortunately, this doesn’t change the fact that cyber criminals are constantly on the lookout for ways to exploit those vulnerabilities and gain access to your private data.

In order to protect your organization you must have a solid grasp on where your vulnerabilities are and how to remediate them. This is where vulnerability management helps.

Why do You Need to Manage Your Vulnerabilities?

Falling victim to a cyber attack or data breach is no joke. The first half of 2022 saw over 230 million cyber attacks alone lending to the notion that ransomware and other forms of attack are not going anywhere anytime soon. More likely than not your organization will be targeted by a bad actor if you haven’t already, this means that your business should operate as if an attack is inevitable and manage your vulnerabilities accordingly.

The Benefits of Vulnerability Management

Finding and remediating the gaps in your security can protect your IT systems from intruders while also protecting you from potential legal trouble or financial loss. Having an established vulnerability management plan also reduces the amount of downtime your business will face if they are hit by a cyber attack letting your employees get back to work as soon as possible in the event of an outage.

Many industries must also comply with various regulatory bodies including CMMC, HIPAA, etc. Your organization can better prepare for auditing if you have an inventory and record of all the assets you scanned for vulnerabilities and patched.
