How to Manage Threat Exposure Management 

by | Jan 22, 2024

There is no mistaking that Continuous Threat Exposure Management (CTEM) or Threat Exposure Management (TEM) is an essential strategy for modern organizations. Threat exposure management is a comprehensive approach that moves beyond the limitations of periodic reviews, instead advocating for an uninterrupted vigilance that adjusts as quickly as new threats emerge. 

Why Organizations Are Embracing Threat Exposure Management 

With cyber threats becoming increasingly sophisticated, rapid, and readily available, the traditional, static approach to cybersecurity is no longer viable. Organizations are embracing threat exposure management to gain a proactive stance, continuously monitoring for exposures, evaluating exploitability of security gaps, and adapting their defenses in real-time to manage threats effectively. This shift ensures operational continuity and aligns cybersecurity measures with business objectives. 

The Core Elements of Threat Exposure Management 

Threat exposure management involves an agile loop of identifying, analyzing, and addressing security exposures. It requires a system that can: 

  • Monitor continuously for new exposures from the OS level and up. 
  • Identify the exploitability of security gaps promptly. 
  • Optimize the security posture by integrating defense layers effectively. 
  • Customize mitigation strategies to fit specific operational and business needs. 
  • Preempt potential threats with informed precision.
