Many organizations have millions, tens of millions, or even 100 million+ vulnerabilities, and Security must work together with IT to fix the most important ones quickly.
Regular patching cycles help, but critical vulnerabilities can slip through the cracks.

This is important to understand, but security teams will both know this and be sensitive to it; care must be applied when discussing these topics.
Vulnerability Response helps organizations move from painfully manual, spreadsheet driven processes to automated digital workflows.
