NopSec, a world leader in cybersecurity analytics, threat and vulnerability risk management and remediation, today released a new report, “2018 Remediation and Vulnerability Risk Management Trends”.
The report reveals emerging trends from our third annual survey of IT Security and Risk practitioners The goal of the survey is to provide a snapshot of the current state of vulnerability risk management (VRM) and challenges that impact the remediation process within organizations. The report presents current findings of how information security (infosec) teams measure vulnerability management success, the perceived level of understanding among senior leadership when it comes to cybersecurity programs, and finally, priorities for improving VRM in the coming year.

“Vulnerability Remediation is where the rubber meets the road in Vulnerability Risk Management. Detecting vulnerabilities is no longer enough if the remediation is only an afterthought of the overall VRM processQuote,” notes NopSec’s CTO, Michelangelo Sidagni. “Our mission is to empower cyber security and risk professionals to make better decisions to reduce their cyber risk exposure.”
Some of the survey’s top findings include:
- Critical Web App vulnerabilities take organizations the longest to remediate at an average rate of 30-60 days.
- Nearly one-third of respondents do not have metrics in place to measure the success of their vulnerability risk management programs.
- Integration with incident response system is one of the top priorities for vulnerabilities risk management programs in 2018.
NopSec’s continued innovations has focused on pioneering a way to measure vulnerability risk based on threats to the organization’s valuable assets in an event of a potential breach. NopSec’s award-winning Unified VRM SaaS platform utilizes the E3 Engine, the world’s first security controls validation and analytics measurements technology to evaluate and explore opportunity for exploitation and control effectiveness.
