Adding Risk Analysis and KPI Reporting to Your WebApp/Vuln Scanning
Discovering your enterprise vulnerabilities has become much easier with scanning tools. However, many organizations still struggle with handling the vulnerabilities that have been identified. Which ones should we fix first, and which ones can we ignore? Who should be responsible for the remediation task, and how can we hold them accountable? These questions and others common struggles for organizations large and not-so-large. In this presentation, we will look at:
Methods to consolidate and de-duplicate scanning results from leading security tools,
Automatically correlate results with assets, incidents, controls, policies, and other compliance/security data,
Conduct risk scoring of each vulnerability and calculate inherent/residual risk scores for the vulnerability, asset, system, facility, and other records,
Assign remediation workflow for vulnerabilities and hold owners accountable,
Correlate scanning results with industry feeds such as US-CERT's NVD and iDefense,
Report on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) such as workflow performance, trends per webapp/platform/Business Unit/Facility, and other categories.
