The market is flooded with solutions for dealing with vulnerabilities and the challenge continues to be understanding the ways to best prioritize and manage the vulnerabilities.

 Figuring out the best way to leverage the cyber risk landscape with growing numbers of vulnerabilities every day is a daunting task, to say the least. Last year, CVE Details, a free database of software vulnerabilities, found a total of 14,712 known vulnerabilities. Indeed, threat analysis and vulnerability remediation can cost organizations up to 320 hours in labor per week.

Fortunately, cyber risk professionals monitoring the threat landscape on social media is at its very best. Today we’re sharing our list of the top 10 cyber risk experts we’re following on Twitter religiously; they are our favorite go-to people in the world of vulnerability remediation and cybersecurity.

Cyber Risk Management is not the Goal

Posted by Yaniv Bar-Dayan on Jul 19, 2018 8:26:50 AM

 

As we discussed in a previous post, a tsunami of known vulnerabilities is flooding businesses worldwide. In fact, the number of vulnerabilities reported to date in 2018 (8138 as of this writing) far outstrips the total number of vulnerabilities reported in all of 2016 (6447). We’re only halfway through the year, so it’s fair to estimate that the total for EOY 2018 will top last year’s record of over 14,600 reported vulnerabilities.

Enterprises are understandably concerned about the management and remediation of so many vulnerabilities with such detrimental potential. Risk analysis services and technologies offered by both veteran and newer players are among the solutions CSOs and other network stakeholders are considering. In this post, we’ll take a look at these services, and examine their (few) pluses and (very prominent) minuses.

According to CVE Details, the number of vulnerabilities reported to date in 2018 (6559) already tops the total number of vulnerabilities reported in all of 2016 (6447). If nothing dramatic changes, the list seems on track to at least match last year’s record of over 14,600 reported vulnerabilities, if not to top it.

“Don’t wake a sleeping lion.”

This was the reaction my two co-founders Tal Morgenstern, Roy Horev, and I had gotten over and over again when sharing with our colleagues our intention to establish Vulcan Cyber.

“There are so many other problems, why this one?”

Well, for me the answer was clear. I knew that solving this problem would profoundly change the face of cybersecurity. And that was enough.
