Security Expert Bruce Schneier describes online vulnerability as follows. “We are vulnerable, because hard- and software has vulnerabilities. The bad guys find them, and keep them for themselves. So we need more good guys to find them too, and then fix those leaks. It’s all we have” But current vulnerability management practices depend on the willingness of individual organizations to collect and find issues, collect updates, and patch. Which is a complex process with many challenges and flaws. In this session we present the case for an integrated, national PPS program for vulnerability management. Strengthen detection, improve information delivery, help CERTS, encourage and help organizations with their patching challenges.
