Prioritization: Focus on what matters
Perfect security is impossible, Zero risk is impossible. We must bring continuous risk and trust-based assessment and prioritization of application vulnerabilities to DevSecOps.
10 Things to Get Right for Successful DevSecOps
Neil MacDonald, Gartner
As the volume of security alerts that development teams deal with continues to rise, it’s nearly impossible to remediate every vulnerability. The burning question is: how do we best prioritize remediation?
The data shows some of the most popular prioritization methods don’t address the security vulnerabilities that the hacker community focuses on. Relying on the most accessible parameters rather than what actually exposes an organization to risk leaves applications open to attacks.
Organizations must implement a solid prioritization method in order to ensure that they are focusing on the most critical issues first, and not wasting valuable time fixing low-risk vulnerabilities while leaving high risk windows wide open.
