How to Automate and Streamline Vulnerability Management Processes.

With so many vulnerabilities to address and limited resources, organizations can leverage automation for effective prioritization and response. Vulnerability management, a multi-step process involving various teams, often focuses on automation for tasks like prioritization and ticket generation. However, these aren’t the only aspects where automation can be applied in the VM lifecycle. In fact, automating lesser-known or less emphasized parts of the process can significantly enhance efficiency across different teams within an organization.

In this webinar, Scott Kuffer, COO, Nucleus, and Sonia Blanks, Director of Product Marketing, Nucleus, will provide an in-depth look at how enterprise organizations can leverage automation to drive efficiency across any vulnerability management program.

The webinar will cover the following topics:

  1. Ownership Assignment: A core element of VM is assigning vulnerability ownership to specific teams or users. Automation tools can significantly reduce the effort in this area by integrating asset and vulnerability ownership data into a single model.
  2. Ticketing Process: Automating the ticketing process is crucial due to the high volume of vulnerabilities. Manual ticket creation is time-consuming, and automation can reduce this effort by up to 90%, streamlining the process of creating and updating tickets.
  3. Data Management During Reorganization: As businesses evolve, maintaining updated asset and vulnerability information becomes challenging. Automation can ensure this data remains current, adapting to organizational changes without manual intervention.
  4. Efficient Reporting: Automating reports, such as those required for federal compliance, can greatly improve efficiency. This involves keeping vulnerability data up-to-date within reporting structures, moving beyond manual data compilation methods like Excel sheets.
  5. Audit Trail and Prioritization: VM requires detailed tracking of changes, akin to maintaining an audit trail in legal proceedings. Automating tracking and prioritization decisions based on a consistent framework can significantly enhance security posture and compliance.

Attendees will come away with a solid understanding of how enterprise organizations can leverage automation to drive efficiency across any vulnerability management program. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from industry experts on how to improve your organization’s overall security posture.

See you there!
