Professionally-Written, Editable & Easily-Implemented Patch & Vulnerability Management Program
Once again, our customers spoke and we listened - our customers needed documentation on how they could prove they have a "vulnerability management program" in place. Similar to the other cybersecurity documentation we sell, many of our customers tried and failed to create their own program-level documentation. However, this is what we've found to be the most difficult for companies to get right. It is not uncommon to have hundreds of man-hours spent on this type of documentation effort and only have it end in failure. That is why we are very excited about this product, since it fills a void at most organizations, both large and small.
The Vulnerability & Patch Management Program (VPMP) is framework-independent (e.g., ISO, NIST, COBIT, etc.) and was designed to integrate with our Written Information Security Program (WISP) and Risk Management Program (RMP) documentation - this allows you to have policies, standards and procedures that work together to create a holistic and comprehensive cybersecurity program!
VPMP Cost Savings
From surveying cybersecurity professionals, we created the following chart to provide a comparison of options for companies needing a documented vulnerability & patch management program. As you can see, when you factor in internal staff time to perform reviews and refinements with key stakeholders, purchasing a VPMP from ComplianceForge is approximately 20% ($13,500+ savings) of the cost as compared to writing your own documentation and 14% ($21,000+ savings) of the cost as compared to hiring a consultant to write it for you!
What do you need to provide when you order the Patch & Vulnerability Management Program?
It is common in policies and other documentation to initial reference the official name of the organization (e.g., full legal name of the company) and the trade / DBA name that is used to commonly refer to the organization. This is usually written in this format: Official (Common). The reason for this is this covers calling out the legal entity the policy is written for, but then references the common name, by which the company will be referred to through the rest of the document. It makes documents much easier to read.
Examples of "official" and "common" business names are:
- BlackHat Consultants, LLC (BlackHat)
- ACME Consulting, Inc. (ACME)
- Beaverton Valley Chamber of Commerce (BVCC)
- City of Lake Tualatin (CLT)
- SonomaTechnology Consulting, Inc. (SonomaTech)
