Vulnerability Management

Vulnerability Management refers to the process of identifying, assessing, prioritizing, and mitigating security vulnerabilities in software, hardware, and networks. Vulnerabilities can be caused by design flaws, coding errors, misconfigurations, or other factors, and can be exploited by attackers to gain unauthorized access, steal data, or cause other types of harm. Effective vulnerability management involves a continuous cycle of discovery, analysis, remediation, and verification, and requires collaboration between various stakeholders, such as security teams, developers, and IT operations personnel.
