Gartner: How Security and Risk Management Leaders Can Establish Practical Time Frames for Vulnerability Remediation

Learn how to increase the effectiveness and impact of your vulnerability management efforts.

“Organizations should focus their remediation and mitigation efforts on the correlation of asset value, the severity of the vulnerabilities and threat actor activity.” – How Security and Risk Management Leaders Can Establish Practical Time Frames for Vulnerability Remediation, Gartner, 2020

Establishing appropriate timeframes and SLAs for remediation is essential to vulnerability management programs. But contrary to popular belief, there’s no “industry standard” for these measurements. Instead, determining specific timeframes and SLAs are highly customized for each organization based on numerous factors, including the organization’s risk appetite, resource availability, and remediation efficiency.

But the sheer volume of vulnerabilities, coupled with the fact that not all vulnerabilities are created equally, has led to the need to prioritize vulnerabilities based on risk, and establish different SLAs for each priority level.
