NetSPI’s Vinay Anand was featured in SC Media, talking about the value of vulnerability prioritization and how organizations can take back control of their environments to address the most urgent and unpatched vulnerabilities in three easy steps. Read the preview below or view it online.


Today’s security teams are witnessing a rising number of vulnerabilities, and to make matters worse, the majority of them are going unpatched — leading to critical breaches that cost organizations millions.

Unpatched vulnerabilities account for 60% of all data breaches, and according to the NIST National Vulnerability Database, vulnerability counts have steadily increased year-over-year for the past five years — showing no signs of slowing down.

The main reason for this steady incline is that organizations do not understand the basics of their attack surface. Additionally, too much of the burden has been put on CISOs. This pressure, in combination with the ongoing talent shortage facing the cybersecurity industry, has driven CISOs to say: “I’ll manage the fires when they come up.
