Moving From Vulnerability Management to Vulnerability ResponseSyra Arif of ServiceNow on Essential Steps
Shifting from vulnerability management to vulnerability response is becoming increasingly important, says Syra Arif of ServiceNow, who describes three essential steps.
Those steps, she says, are: move to an automated strategy, focus on asset management as a core strategy and implement risk refactoring - "understand the business context of what's happening in your organization so you can prioritize work."
In a video interview at Information Security Media Group's recent Healthcare Security Summit in New York, Arif discusses:
- The difference between vulnerability management and vulnerability response;
- What healthcare organizations aren't getting right today;
- The role of artificial intelligence and machine learning in more effective and timely responses to vulnerability threats.
Arif is senior advisory solutions architect, security and risk, at ServiceNow. She has a diverse background including technical consulting, sales engineering and technical marketing in the areas of security operations, vulnerability management, threat intelligence, governance, risk and compliance, and identity and access management.
