Vulnerability prioritization is one of the most important steps in managing cybersecurity risks effectively. Ideally, security teams would address every vulnerability immediately upon detection. However, the reality is far from ideal because of the overwhelming number of vulnerabilities and their escalating volume among other challenges, like severity spectrum differences requiring nuanced assessment, evolving threats, or resource constraints.

I’ll be honest – the last time someone asked me to assess my behavior was in therapy. Difficult? Yes. Who likes to audit themselves? But that process taught me something valuable: evaluating ourselves, even when uncomfortable, propels us forward. In my many conversations with security professionals, one common theme emerges. We need continuous progress forward as security organizations for the business.

In this webinar, Scott Kuffer discusses the challenges and best practices of vulnerability management workflows and ticketing. He emphasizes the discrepancy between vulnerability management teams' priorities and the priorities of the business as a whole. Scott explores different ticketing workflows, starting with basic vulnerability-based tickets and progressing to more advanced options such as asset-based, team-based, and action-based tickets. He highlights the benefits of automating ticket creation and reporting, as well as the potential for redefining how vulnerability management is approached within organizations.

Single Pane of Glass (SPOG) is a common buzzword that sends shivers down the spines of technical folks everywhere. Yet, executive teams ask for it, especially in vulnerability management. At the same time, the complex and fragmented nature of modern IT environments wreaks havoc on organizations aiming to understand their current location related to remediating and patching risks. So, what exactly is a single pane of glass, and what does it look like for enterprises today?

In this presentation, we explore the intersection of vulnerability intelligence and prioritization frameworks such as CVSS and SSVC as a means for strategically and rapidly prioritizing vulnerabilities to stay ahead of exploitation risks. We delve into the process of applying real-time threat intelligence tailored to the vulnerability landscape to enhance decision-making, optimize resource allocation, and ensure a precise and proactive defense against cyber threats.

With so many vulnerabilities to address and potential threats looming, how can organizations prioritize and respond effectively? Enter Vulnerability Threat Intelligence (VTI). This knowledge not only aids in pinpointing vulnerabilities but also shapes strategies for risk acceptance and rapid responses to zero-day threats. Join our webinar where Patrick Garrity from Nucleus Security, Caleb Hoch from Google, and Jared Semrau from Mandiant, uncover how to effectively leverage vulnerability threat intelligence (VTI).

Product security and vulnerability management have become critical components of an organization's overall cybersecurity strategy. However, these two teams often face challenges in working together effectively, leading to misalignment and potential security gaps. Patrick Garrity hosted a roundtable discussion with industry experts Matthew Clapham and Scott Kuffer to share applied lessons from product security teams and vulnerability management.

Patrick Garrity, Security Researcher at Nucleus Security, discusses the rise of vulnerabilities exploitation and threat intelligence in the field of vulnerability management. He highlights the history of vulnerability management, the increase in vulnerabilities and exploitation, the limitations of the common vulnerability scoring system (CVSS), and the emergence of vulnerability threat intelligence. Patrick also emphasizes the importance of open-source intelligence, such as CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) List and the Exploit Prediction Scoring System (EPSS), as well as the value of commercial threat intelligence.

There are hundreds of statistics you could collect and monitor to use as guiding metrics, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea to do so. Learn the four most critical metrics to track in vulnerability management, and what they tell us about the health of your program.

Many organizations are using outdated, highly inefficient, and time consuming VM processes that leave security personnel struggling to keep up. As the vulnerability landscape continues to evolve rapidly, the processes used to discover, track, and remediate them has failed to evolve with it.

Vulnerability exploitation is involved in over half of breaches, making it a huge risk to organizations. And the problem only continues to balloon year over year... both in the speed at which attackers are capitalizing on exploited vulnerabilities, and in the way that technology and assets outgrow most organization's current vulnerability management programs. In this series, we're going to be breaking down how vulnerability management has grown and evolved over time, plus how to modernize your program using things like risk-based vulnerability management.
