“A large number of breaches occur where vulnerabilities have existed for more than three months," he says. "We have a large internal network with a lot of devices. We set up an internal scanning of the infrastructure that we do on a monthly basis. We have also established a process to engage with different app teams for scanning.”

In a video interview with Information Security Media Group, Yurich also discusses:

  • His organization's vulnerability management process;
  • Why vulnerability management is far more than a one-time process;
  • Top recommendations for establishing an effective vulnerability management program.

Yurich, CISO at Penn National Insurance, has run cybersecurity programs for government and private entities. He is a Certified Information Systems Security Professional, or CISSP, and is Certified in Risk and Information Systems Control, or CRISC.
