Horizon3.ai - Automated Pen Testing as a Service

Vulnerable ≠ Exploitable

Vulnerable ≠ Exploitable - A Horizon 3 AI Tech Talk


Pen testers, vulnerability scanners, and installed agents alert on potential vulnerabilities and breaches. You receive a list, or a notification, and you respond. Ever wonder how much of your time and effort is being wasted fixing things that don’t actually matter?

You may be surprised to hear that a large majority of all vulnerabilities are unexploitable. According to data compiled by Kenna, in 2020, only 2.7% of the vulnerabilities found appeared to be exploitable and only 0.4% of those vulnerabilities were actually observed to be exploited at all.1

Horizon3.ai will host Tech Talk #4, “Vulnerable ≠ Exploitable,” on Wednesday, April 28, 2021, at 2PM US Eastern, when we will explore the difference between a vulnerability you can note without action and an exploitable vulnerability you must fix, so you can spend your time, effort and resources fixing what matters.

To stir things up, we will be joined by a few ethical hackers who will walk you through the ‘Anatomy of an Attack’ that exploits low-scoring vulnerabilities by chaining them to create true critical paths.
