Vulnerability Management Definition

Vulnerability management is one of the key process that comes under security of every company. This process consists of a cycle of events to prevent IT vulnerabilities. Simply this process helps to identify and rectify the security risks of a company.

The process of vulnerability management includes a cycle of events. They are

  • Checking: Here the network assets are found and categorized into different classes like vulnerabilities, configuration, patch state, compliance state, and inventory. This process can be done by a firewall logging, regular network scanner, and penetration testing or automated tool like vulnerability scanner. With the updating world no system never remains the same hence information about network assets should be constantly refreshed.

  • Identifying and Verifying: Identification always results in different outcomes and different audiences (servers, applications, networks, or other systems.) This management operates based on prioritization since every minute problem can’t be reported. And hence arranges the problem according to prioritization. This process makes a record of every problem and it is later used in company’s risk management.

  • Mitigating: In this process the vulnerability is being exploited before the recovery or in the situation where no recovery is available. In this process the risky part alone is taken off-line from the affected system. By doing this the system risk is diminished but the vulnerability is still there.

  • Recovery: The process of getting remedy to the affected system. This process may be automatically done by the available Recovery tools or a usual testing method.
