Continuous Vulnerability Assessment
CIS Control 3
Continuously acquire, assess, and take action on any new information in order to identify vulnerabilities, remediate, and minimize the window of opportunity for attackers.
Why is this Critical?
95% of all damaging cyberattacks are the result of exploiting well-known vulnerabilities. The security landscape is continuously changing – and organizations must address this risk and perform regular vulnerability scans in their environments. But it doesn’t stop there, flaws and vulnerabilities must also be mitigated so attackers don’t take advantage of these gaps and result in an actual compromise of your data.
