OK, I admit it. I use GPS to navigate some routes I’ve driven at least a hundred times. It’s a relief to hear that robotic voice helping me with every single turn on my way home. Here at Core, we asked-how can we make the vulnerability management journey easier for organizations to traverse to reduce the risk of a potential security breach? Ah, yes, a roadmap of sorts to follow to ensure a successful program! Everyone loves free resources, right? The five-level Threat and Vulnerability Management Maturity Model (TVM) combines an understanding of an organization’s assets, IT infrastructure, and vulnerabilities to help:
- Reduce risk exposure and the likelihood of a breach
- Gain ongoing visibility into true business risk, improving future decision-making
- Align IT, information security, and the rest of the organization in the direction of strategic business goals
- Significantly increase operational efficiency
We asked organizations to pinpoint their current location on the TVM Maturity Model, and found that 33% are at Level 2 or below, suffering from peak data overload and very unlikely to be able to effectively counter adversaries. Take a look at our infographic below! Can you easily identify where your organization is on the vulnerability management journey, and the next turn you need to take to advance your program?
