What is meant by vulnerability management?

1. Identifying Vulnerabilities: Vulnerability management is the process of identifying, assessing, and mitigating security vulnerabilities in an organization’s software and systems. This process involves scanning for known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, as well as analyzing the system for potential weaknesses.

2. Assessing Vulnerabilities: Once vulnerabilities have been identified, they must be assessed to determine the risk they pose to the organization. This assessment will include the severity of the vulnerability, the likelihood of exploitation, and the potential impact on the organization.

3. Treating Vulnerabilities: Once the risk posed by a vulnerability has been determined, it must be treated. This can include applying patches and updates, implementing additional security measures, or taking other steps to reduce the risk.

4. Reporting Vulnerabilities: Finally, vulnerability management also involves reporting the findings of the vulnerability assessment to the appropriate personnel. This allows the organization to take the necessary steps to mitigate the risk posed by the vulnerabilities.
