Complimentary Gartner® Report:
How to Implement a Risk-Based Vulnerability Management Methodology‌

Risk-Based Vulnerability Management

Vulnerabilities are not just a technical issue but are also a business risk that needs to be managed effectively. A risk-based approach to vulnerability management ensures that organizations focus their resources and efforts on the most critical vulnerabilities that pose the greatest risk to the business. Risk-based vulnerability management involves identifying, assessing, and prioritizing vulnerabilities based on their impact on the business, the likelihood of occurrence, and the resources required to mitigate them. This approach ensures that vulnerabilities are not just patched or fixed in isolation, but are addressed in a way that aligns with the overall business strategy and risk management framework.

According to Gartner, “Too many organizations rely on the well-intentioned, legacy framework approach. The issue is that these are neither evidence-based nor adjusted dynamically for your environment.”1 Many companies still use a rearview approach of governance, risk, and compliance (GRC). They are stuck on a treadmill of making the same mistakes over and over again, patching vulnerabilities as they are found without prioritization. Ultimately, this puts them in a position of greater risk. “Patching represents credible availability risk to a business and, ironically, so too does not patching.”1

With enterprise risk management, organizations can stay ahead of potential threats and reduce the likelihood of data breaches, cyber-attacks, and other negative consequences. LogicManager’s risk-based approach helps organizations to make informed decisions about where to allocate their resources and efforts, ensuring that vulnerabilities are managed in a way that is consistent with their overall risk appetite and business objectives. By adopting this approach, organizations can reduce the likelihood of negative consequences and manage tomorrow’s surprises today.
