The goal of network visibility is to provide the ability to monitor, inspect, troubleshoot, and terminate any network traffic to systems or devices, without compromising the integrity of the network. Lack of visibility creates a situation where you have no insight into the traffic traversing your network. And, as the saying goes, "you don't know what you don't know." Just as in microbiology, pernicious infections can fester in unmonitored locations.

Having said that, the lack of visibility neither creates the vulnerabilities on the system, nor does it add to the threat of exploitation. But it does add to the threat that system exploitation will not be detected for longer periods of time and that more systems are likely to be involved because of prolonged exposure.
