Product terminology simply explained

Product Vulnerability

Product vulnerability refers to the susceptibility of a product to be exploited or compromised. In the context of product management and software development, a product vulnerability refers to a weakness in the software or hardware that can be exploited by hackers, leading to potential security breaches.

Just like a small hole in a dam can cause massive flooding, a product vulnerability can have severe consequences, exposing user data, compromising system integrity, or leading to financial loss. It is crucial for product managers to proactively identify and address vulnerabilities through regular security audits, updates, and implementing best practices to ensure the safety and trustworthiness of their products.
