"Effective risk management hinges on an organization's ability to manage vulnerabilities," said contributor Colin Anderson. "Vulnerability Management is complex and requires the alignment of policies, processes and technologies to deliver it well. As a contributor of the report, I hope that other CISOs will benefit from my experience tackling vulnerability management challenges. By the same token, I have found it invaluable to learn about other CISOs perspectives to help my VM program. The collective wisdom of the participating CISOs in the report is what makes the CISOs Investigate reports so valuable."
