Our security team scans for internal, external, credentialed and non-credentialed vulnerabilities and delivers a list of vulnerabilities with a defined risk level. Our IT team patches systems based on vendors' patch cycles throughout their lifetime. Once our security team communicates vulnerabilities, the IT team works to remediate, testing in the staging infrastructure when possible, and deploying during the next suitable window
