Sallie Mae’s Enterprise-wide Continuous Monitoring and Vulnerability Management Program Evolution
Executive Sponsor: Jerry Archer, Senior VP and Chief Security Officer (CSO)
Project Team: Chris Tuten, Brian Brush, John Washington, Andy Budack, Noel Koperczak
Location: Fishers, Indiana

In 2011, Sallie Mae’s information security team realized the need to replace its vulnerability scanning process as a way to better secure its expanding computing infrastructure within an increasingly constrained budgetary environment. After evaluating the potential impact on its systems, the team initiated this complex task knowing that significant reengineering of the company’s processes would be required. Committed to the end result, the team moved from periodic, compliance-oriented scanning to full implementation of a new enterprise-wide continuous monitoring program in record time, more than doubling scanning coverage while realizing an annual cost savings of 31% over the next 5 years.
