CVE, CVSS, and the land of broken dreams
Context is king; Prioritization is queen, and CVSS is dead. Stop your tiers and start with a risk approach and contextual view of vulnerabilities.
Vulnerability tooling is increasing, security advisories are faster, and teams are leaner. Have we lost the battle of vulnerabilities, is the shift left and the view that ‘security is everyone’s problem working?
We present a risk and cyber quantification view on vulnerabilities across cloud, application, and infrastructure addressing modern approaches to cybersecurity from the point of view of the product security team.
We will walk several use cases showing how context, prioritization, probability and impact analysis can improve which vulnerability to solve first.
