Re: 691 M
Definitely agree, its always easier to qualify statistics if they are broken down into a regular trend, in this case by year.

Re: Valuable Assessment
(Around known vulnerabilities) I agree that all known vulnerabilities need to be patched but prioritizing the criticals and severes over other moderate risk vulnerabilities may make mitigation more easily digestible, especially for organizations that are just starting to put together a program.

Re: Valuable Assessment
About Equifax. If I recall correctly, they only had one individual responsible for patching which the executives tried to use as a scapegoat for the breach. I was baffled. But you'd be surprised how many organizations don't even have one person dedicated to patching.

Re: Valuable Assessment
Unfortunately, too many companies continue under the methodology that they are not going to make changes until they are burnt by the stove. Agree. Most companies do not care until they get hit and of course they go out of business just after that.

Re: Valuable Assessment
definitely complements the logic of prioritizing patching Makes sense. Prioritization may not be enough, all the know vulnerabilities should be closed in a timely manner I would guess.

Equifax - case closed. Learn from a true master. Makes sense. We should try to apply all patches needed as a timely manner.

Re: Valuable Assessment
SANS has stated that 90% of risk can be mitigated through patching That makes sense and I would agree with it. Patching is critical.

691 M
681 million cyberattacks last year, according to analysts at cloud security provider Armor, This does not give any how big the number is. It needs to be compared to previous years to make sense.

Re: Valuable Assessment
Yup, definitely complements the logic of priorizing patching. I guess from "learning from a true master" it aligns with the premise of a smart man learns from their own mistakes but a brilliant man learns from others. Unfortunately, too many companies continue under the methodology that they are not going to make changes until they are burnt by the stove.

The 10 Most Impactful Types of Vulnerabilities for Enterprises Today
Managing system vulnerabilities is one of the old est - and most frustrating - security challenges that enterprise defenders face. Every software application and hardware device ships with intrinsic flaws - flaws that, if critical enough, attackers can exploit from anywhere in the world. It's crucial that defenders take stock of what areas of the tech stack have the most emerging, and critical, vulnerabilities they must manage. It's not just zero day vulnerabilities. Consider that CISA's Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEV) catalog lists vulnerabilitlies in widely used applications that are "actively exploited," and most of them are flaws that were discovered several years ago and have been fixed. There are also emerging vulnerabilities in 5G networks, cloud infrastructure, Edge applications, and firmwares to consider.
