- [Lora] We all love fixing problems but you can't fix a problem you don't know about. Vulnerabilities exists in every system and there's not always an obvious fix. Taking a structured approach to vulnerability management is the best way to protect your systems, resources, and finances from the risk vulnerabilities pose. Using lessons from my career in cybersecurity, I'll explain the basics of vulnerabilities, why they exist, how to find them, and how to identify what to fix first. I'm Lora Vaughn McIntosh, a cybersecurity executive in the financial services industry.
