Ponemon Institute is pleased to present the findings of the second study on vulnerabilityand patch management. As shown inthis research, the severity and volume ofcyberattacks is increasing. However, mostorganizations are not comparably enhancingtheir abilities to prevent hackers fromexploiting attack vectors. In fact, it’s takinglonger to detect and longer to patch criticalvulnerabilities than last year. The cost andconsequences of this failure are myriad.
