Disabling SNMP on a Cisco Router

I'm still learning how to do this stuff but I have a vulnerability scan that is telling me about "Multiple SNMP v1 Request Handling Vulnerabilities"

The recommendations are as follows:

Fix Multiple SNMP v1 Request Handling Vulnerabilities

If SNMP is not required, the service should be disabled on the device. Please refer to the device manufacturer's documentation for the steps involved with disabling SNMP.

I'm not a network expert. To be honest I'm not entirely certain what SNMP is used for or why I need it. I've looked in my configuration file and found the following entries:

snmp-server community XXXXXXXX RO 20 (X's represent I believe password data - redacted)
snmp-server trap-source Vlan10
snmp-server enable traps snmp authentication linkdown linkup coldstart warmstart
snmp-server enable traps tty
snmp-server enable traps syslog

Based on this information should I disable SNMP? If so, how?

Sorry but that link went way over my head. Why would I not want to disable SNMP? What purpose would it serve to leave it enabled? Do you have any more specific instructions on how I could disable SNMP v1? A step-by-step list of commands would be great!
