Vulnerability management has become a critical component of a holistic information security program, yet enterprises continue to be breached, in part due to a lack response to known vulnerabilities, such as effective patching.

The state of attacks is changing and vulnerability management must change with it. While many organizations understand that annual scans arent enough, they still struggle with prioritizing resources to address vulnerabilities.

In this SANS webcast, certified instructor Jake Williams will address todays effective vulnerability management. Attendees will learn about:

  • Prioritizing the application of patches
  • Mapping security controls to assets
  • Threat modeling to understand attack chains
  • Gap analysis to prioritize new security controls

Register now and be among the first to receive the associated white paper written by Jake Williams.
