Managing Your Vulnerabilities
What are your organizations biggest vulnerabilities? It could be a misconfigured server, a weak password policy, or lack of security awareness training. Knowing where your gaps are is the first step in patching them and managing your vulnerabilities can be a monumental task. This is why CorpInfoTech offers vulnerability management to help your organization understand where it must improve to become secure.
What Constitutes a Vulnerability?
A vulnerability is anything within your organization that may leave you open to attack. This could include hardware assets, software assets or your own employees. A misconfigured firewall or server could leave open back doors for bad actors to exploit. In turn your entire network could become victim to a sophisticated ransomware attack all because one security control wasn’t implemented correctly.
Physical security is also a huge concern for your business. Leaving networking devices out in the open rather than behind closed doors is an easy vulnerability to exploit. If anyone in the building can walk up to your router or AP and make changes then you could have a problem on your hands.
Unfortunately, your employees could also constitute a vulnerability without even realizing it. A weak password policy or lack of security awareness training could make your workers susceptible to a social engineering attack.
Another example may be a recently terminated employee. Do they still have access to your network? If so this represents a huge vulnerability due to the fact that someone currently outside of your organization has a way inside. Whether you want to or not, recognizing and managing these vulnerabilities is necessary for the future of your business.
