Our vulnerability management services for Brisbane businesses in detail

Vulnerability Management is about:

1) Identifying vulnerabilities;

2) Assessing the risk posed by identified vulnerabilities;

3) Prioritising vulnerability remediation;

4) Facilitating security responses; and

5) Continuous evaluation.

1) Identify Vulnerabilities

For your Brisbane business to effectively manage it’s vulnerabilities, we first need to identify what they are. Importantly, this process needs to continually evolve to recognise new threats as they arise. Vulnerabilities can be anything that allows unwanted access to your information. They can also be part of the computers through the BIAS or OS. They can be in specialist software systems that your business operates or they could be in software that you develop internally. Any system that can be accessed via the internet or another computer needs to be tested to ensure it doesn’t have any access vulnerabilities.

Most vulnerabilities are first detected by security companies like, Faster Networks, when they do a Penetration Test.

2) Assess Risk

There is a different degree of risk associated with each vulnerability. This includes how well known is the technique used to access your information? What information does the vulnerability expose? How likely is it that someone will find the vulnerability?

While a DDoS attack may stop your network from being accessible while the attack is active, it doesn’t expose your confidential data. As a result, unless your system has time critical functionality, this type of vulnerability may not be as serious as others.

In contrast, a cross site scripting (XSS) attack may gain access to an application, a website or server. Once again, it depends on what information can be accessed as to how critical this type of vulnerability is.

It is important for vulnerability management to have an understanding of what level of risk the vulnerability poses to the business. This is the case even though the overall objective is to identify and remediate all vulnerabilities.

Faster Networks provide reports which include risk assessments with every penetration test we perform so. This means, you are fully aware of your current vulnerability level for your Brisbane business.

3) Prioritise Remediation

All management decisions are made through prioritising how important the actions are to the business. Vulnerability management is the same. This is because not every vulnerability found results in a serious and time critical problem. However, issues arise when someone exploits the vulnerability at your expense.

Once a vulnerability has been identified and is risk assessed, the next step is to identify what remediation options are available. Costs to remediate along with when remediation is required also needs to be considered. Sometimes businesses decide that a specific vulnerability is an acceptable risk and will do nothing to remediate them. However, other vulnerabilities will result in an immediate and costly remediation exercise to prevent loss of critical data.

Faster Networks uses Vulnerability Management software that will adapt to your work requirements and prioritise vulnerability remediation according to your business needs.

4) Facilitate Security Response

One of the most important parts of cyber security is vulnerability remediation. Once a vulnerability is detected, assessed and prioritised, you need to act to remediate the threat to protect your Brisbane business.

Faster Networks has the expertise to facilitate the security responses required to remediate your vulnerabilities. With our extensive knowledge of the vulnerabilities, we will identify what is required to correct most issues and where the corrective actions are needed. In some cases, this can be an automated response with adjustments to configuration settings and firewalls. Sometimes this can be done remotely and other times it requires manual interventions.

The Faster Networks’ SOAR playbook provides specific details on how to handle the different types of vulnerabilities and what actions are required when a vulnerability requires remediation.

5) Continuous Evaluation

With the continuously changing nature of IT, new exploits and vulnerabilities are continually being identified. In addition, sometimes vulnerabilities can re-emerge due to software updates or configuration changes.

Vulnerability management needs to be a continuous process. This means you need to regularly retest your systems against the latest vulnerability solutions to ensure you are meeting both old and new threats alike.

This is where the Faster Networks solutions provide the best results. Our best in class SOAR (Security, Orchestration, Automation Response) solutions will automate the vulnerability evaluation process for your Brisbane business. We will retest your system against any previously detected vulnerabilities. This will confirm when they have been remediated and also to ensure they don’t return. At the same time we will be looking for new and emerging vulnerabilities to ensure your systems have the best cyber security available.
