Vulnerability Management is a term that describes the various processes, tools, and strategies for identifying, evaluating, treating, and reporting on security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations within an organization's software and systems.
Differences Between a Vulnerability, a Risk, and a Threat:
A vulnerability is a weakness of an asset or group of assets that can be exploited by one or more threats.
A threat is something that can exploit a vulnerability.
A risk is what happens when a threat exploits a vulnerability. It’s the damage that could be caused by the open vulnerability being exploited by a threat.
