Identifying a Vulnerability Management Expert

The Client

Federal Government Agency

This program office of this Federal Civilian agency is responsible for advising the Director and Senior Management on strategic directions and management of significant client Information and Information Technology (I&IT) programs and policy. The goals of this program are to: enable creation and sharing of scientific and business knowledge; enhance business adaptability by ensuring that Information and Information technology (I&IT) projects are well managed and are able to respond rapidly to business and research needs; ensure a robust, secure infrastructure; and develop an I&IT capable workforce.

The Technology

  • Tenable Security Center
  • IBM AppScan
  • Social Media

The Challenge

The client’s goal was to obtain a continuous view of the risk associated with the presence of security vulnerabilities within its IT systems by having a well-defined Vulnerability Management process in place. This would provide management with the capability to make well-advised decisions with regards to identifying and remediating actions that would be implemented to reduce the risks.

The Solution

Our senior resource team identified the right talent that had strong experience in Vulnerability Management and had the expertise to scan and remediate web applications and network systems for vulnerabilities prior to said applications and systems going into the production environment.

Our expert used Tenable Security Center, IBM AppScan and Netsparker Vulnerability scanning tools to support the tasks on this project.

The Success

The program successfully created and managed a process in which vulnerabilities were identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities were evaluated. This evaluation led to the remediation of the vulnerabilities and the removal of risks or a formal risk acceptance by the Client management team.
