(Source: Cisco’s Kenna Security Prioritization to Prediction Report)

➢ A record-breaking 20,130 software vulnerabilities were reported in 2021. That’s 55 a day, but only 4% pose a high risk to organizations.

➢ 95% of IT assets have at least one highly exploitable vulnerability.

➢ 87% of organizations have open vulnerabilities in at least a quarter of their active assets, and 41% of them show vulnerabilities in three of every four assets.

➢ Prioritizing vulnerabilities to fix is more effective than increasing an organization’s capacity to patch them, but having both can achieve a 29x reduction in exploitability.

Quotable

“The real question is is this a deal that could substantially lessen competition or tend to create a monopoly. And there’s also indication that Congress wanted enforcers not just to act when the third and fourth companies are merging or the first and second, but actually in the incipiency… I think part of this process of revising the merger guidelines was doing these studies to understand what did we miss?.. The project to potentially revise the guidelines is to basically identify what are the blind spots right now, what are the questions that we haven’t been asking that we should be asking? Some of those are in the tech context, but others are relating to what’s known as monopsony or labor effects.”
– FTC Chair Lina Khan on CNBC’s “Capital Exchange” discussing merger guidelines and how the agency will be evaluating large transactions moving forward.
