Vulnerability Management is an integral part of your overall layered security approach. It includes 4 different components to round out your strategy. Identification includes scanning the network for all the hardware and software within your network because you can’t protect what you don’t know about. Then accurately and reliably identifying every vulnerability within those systems on the entire network infrastructure. Classification is understanding the who, what, and where of the discovered vulnerabilities in order to properly address them. Once we address the issue we move on to remediation which includes fixing the vulnerability and a strategy to reduce the risk for it happening again. And the last component is mitigation which includes the actionable steps to move forward.
