The Ultimate Guide to Vulnerability Prioritisation

More vulnerabilities than you can handle? Let us walk you through how best to prioritise them as well as what NOT to do.

~ 0 min read

If you’re reading this, you’re in the all too common position that your business has more vulnerabilities than it can possibly remediate and you need to prioritise them to tackle the most critical first. With scanners reporting hundreds and in some cases THOUSANDS of new vulnerabilities each day, it’s tough to stay on top of it. But don’t worry, you are not alone in the struggle. That is why we’ve created an ebook to talk you through how best to prioritise vulnerabilities as well as what NOT to do.

As Chris Wallis, the CEO of vulnerability scanner, Intruder, says, “It has never been more important to prioritise vulnerabilities effectively. With nearly 20,000 being discovered each year, and hackers weaponising exploits faster than ever, teams must focus on fixing those most likely to lead to a breach – and fast, rather than always aiming for a clean slate.”

In our ebook – the Ultimate Guide to Vulnerability Prioritisation – we explain just what effective vulnerability prioritisation looks like (as well as how many teams who are under pressure end up getting it wrong.)

What are the options for vulnerability prioritisation?

If you’re finding it impossible to remediate all the new vulnerabilities that scanners identify, our ebook goes through all the options to help you prioritise them in a way that will have the greatest impact on your business.

This includes the pros and cons of:

  • CVSS
  • Third party prioritisation tools
  • DIY

The best approach to vulnerability prioritisation

It wouldn’t be an Ultimate Guide if we didn’t talk you through how to undertake the best approach for vulnerability prioritisation which includes:

  • Documenting everything
  • Absorbing as much vulnerability intelligence as you can
  • Watching out for false positives
  • And more.
