A zero-day threat is a vulnerability that becomes known to the vendor on the same day it becomes known to the public, meaning IT assets targeted by a zero-day threat won't have a patch available when it's needed. However, zero-day attacks operate in a realm of the probable - they work only because there are exploitable vulnerabilities within IT systems. Many of these can, and should be prevented.
This guide describes why organizations are vulnerable to zero-day attacks, and what you can do to add a zero-day offense to your existing vulnerability management processes to protect your organization's assets and data.

According to the United Nations, on average, more than 200 million people were affected and more than 70,000 were killed by natural disasters annually. Given the fact that one of the primary responsibilities of government is to protect the public and minimize the effects of such calamities, citizens now demand that public-sector safety organizations be proactive, and respond promptly and effectively to all types of crisis situations, including catastrophes, terror events, and threats to critical infrastructure.
To effectively respond to these challenges, public safety agencies must be able to rely on secure networks with integrated voice, video, and data capabilities. With these networks and their associated assets, agencies can obtain more timely and accurate information, enhancing situational awareness and improving response times.
