Vulnerability Management


What is Vulnerability Management?

To proactively address vulnerabilities before they are leveraged, organizations should perform comprehensive vulnerability management.

Vulnerability management is a security practice specifically designed to identify, evaluate, treat, and report any IT vulnerabilities that could potentially harm any digital asset or system. It is a dynamic process that requires stakeholders to detect new vulnerabilities and mitigate them through the patching and configuration of security settings.

Threat management is a reactive process whereas vulnerability management is a proactive process focused on prevention versus a fix.

  • What is considered a vulnerability?

A vulnerability is any weak point in an organization’s infrastructure or network through which external threat factors gain unauthorized access or control of  an application, service, endpoint, or server. For example, the most common software security vulnerabilities include missing authentication for critical functions, absent authorization, missing data encryption, OS command injection, unrestricted upload of suspicious file types, and buffer overflow.

While various security vendors have their own vulnerability and risk mitigation definitions, vulnerability management is often seen as an open, standards-based effort that uses the Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP). At an advanced level, SCAP can be broken down into a four components:

Common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE) – Each CVE represents a specific vulnerability through which a cyber-attack may occur.
Common configuration enumeration (CCE) – A CCE is a list of system security configuration issues used to develop configuration guidance.
Common platform enumeration (CPE) – CPEs are standardized methods of defining classes of applications, operating systems, and devices within your environment. CPEs are used to describe what a CVE or CCE applies to. These are the end-points, i.e., digital systems, devices,  that are vulnerable.
Common vulnerability scoring system (CVSS) – CVSS works to assign severity scores to each defined vulnerability, which is used to prioritize remediation efforts. Scores range from zero  to ten, with ten being the most severe.

Cyber Legion streamlines vulnerability management by correlating vulnerabilities from multiple sources, automatically de-duplicating and simplifying prioritization of those findings using threat intelligence.  Cyber Legion provides actionable insights into the full security health index of your organization with a single  login.

Cyber Legion sees each sub-process as a cycle designed to improve security and reduce organizational risk found in the digital environment.
