Vulnerabilities vs Exploits
I would suggest that vulnerabilities need patch management and exploits need pen testing.
If something is vulnerable then you need to change it, trying to guess what the exploit will look like is often impossible or it just cannot be done from an external attack. 
I would rather defend against an attack that is out there in the wild than something I might be vulnerable. I want to know does my IDS recognise real attacks and not spend my time guessing what an attack might look like. So, I defed against  knives and guns but the Martian ray gun, not until one exists.

Unfortunately True
I can attest to these statements seeing it first hand in a previous line of work. Unfortunately, Zero days were the only vulnerabilities that were on the radar and unfortunately they were only a blip. I think in the wake of such large breaches we need to understand that handling application security is iterative, as is vulnerability management as a whole. Focusing on vulnerabilities in a traditional methodology is incredibly cumbersome. An agile mindset is a much better way of handling these.

Developing and Testing an Effective Breach Response Plan
Whether or not a data breach is a disaster for the organization depends on the security team's response and that is based on how the team developed a breach response plan beforehand and if it was thoroughly tested. Inside this report, experts share how to: -understand the technical environment, -determine what types of incidents would trigger the plan, -know which stakeholders need to be notified and how to do so, -develop steps to contain the breach, collect evidence, and initiate recovery.
