With the proliferation of new attack vectors comes the need to be able to identify security vulnerabilities, rate them, and patch them as quickly as possible. This involves a systematic approach to managing this process. In this paper I will define the industry standards for vulnerability management. This includes the methods for identifying vulnerabilities and classifying their risks as well as the individuals involved in the process. I will also define the steps involved in performing a vulnerability assessment and some tools that can facilitate the process. Furthermore I will discuss sources of current vulnerability information and steps that can be taken to protect assets when a patch is not currently available. Finally I will discuss industry regulations that require organizations to have vulnerability assessments performed on a regular basis.
