<p>It’s all very well for businesses to be open to receiving information on vulnerabilities but to really enhance the security of an enterprise, businesses must prioritise action on fixing security holes before thousands – or in this case millions – of people are affected. Spending up to a year to fix security flaws on a network automatically leaves customers at high risk of having their information stolen by malicious actors. Speed is your best friend when it comes to patching vulnerabilities, and one of the only real metrics an organization can use to measure the success of vulnerability management programs. Organizations that can act fast have a much stronger chance at keeping up with attackers.</p>
