Vulnerability Management and Risk Assessment for the Cybersecurity Framework

Tenable Network Security, Inc. serves customers worldwide and each of our customers has a unique set of vulnerability management and compliance requirements. This paper provides insight to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework, which calls for “a set of industry standards and best practices to help organizations manage cybersecurity risks”.

Specifically, this paper describes how Tenable’s solutions can be leveraged to help meet the guidelines and practices outlined in the components of the Cybersecurity Framework. Organizations can use the Framework to focus on a risk- based approach to align its vulnerability management processes with business requirements. While the Framework is not intended to be a “one size fits all” approach, Tenable’s solutions are scalable across all organizational sizes and can be adapted for specific targeted use across several types of verticals.
