Vulnerability Bulletins Health-ISAC Vulnerability Bulletins are distributed by the Threat Operations Center after analysis and validation of a vulnerability potentially impacting Member networks. Vulnerability Bulletins are issued to alert organizations of cyber vulnerabilities and to help vulnerability management teams prioritize patch updates. These bulletins often contain mitigation steps that include security updates and/or mitigation steps/tools.

A recent Member Satisfaction Survey shows Members appreciate the succinct summaries with vulnerability analysis to free up time that can be directed to higher value tasks.

• – Outstanding Value or Very Good Value = 83%

• – Some Value, Very Little Value, or No Value = 11%

• – Don’t Know / Don’t Use = 6%
