Executive Summary Dashboard: Contextual Vulnerability Prioritization Panel

This article describes the metrics displayed in the contextual vulnerability prioritization panel

dashboard-panel-04

The contextual vulnerability prioritization panel shows how the contextual prioritization re-ranks vulnerabilities severity globally in the organization, from the original CVSS distribution to the final Contextual Priotizization Score (CPS) distribution.

CVSS Distribution

The original CVSS distribution is shown on the left part of the graph, with CVSS scores ranging from 0 to 10.

The horizontal bar graphs shows how many vulnerabilities (under remediation-centric groups just like in the vulnerabilities view) were present in every CVSS score section, from 0 to 10, before the prioritization.

The number displayed at the right of each horizontal bar graph is the exact count of how many vulnerabilities had these CVSS scores before the prioritization.

CPS Distribution

The final CPS distribution is shown on the right part of the graph, with CPS scores ranging from 0 to 10.

The horizontal bar graphs shows how many vulnerabilities (under remediation-centric groups just like in the vulnerabilities view) are now present in every CPS score section, from 0 to 10, after the prioritization.

The number displayed at the left of each horizontal bar graphs is the exact count of how many vulnerabilities now have this CPS after the prioritization.

Increase/Decrease Arrows

The arrows at the center of the graph are visual indicators for an increase or a decrease of vulnerability count in this specific score section, from the original CVSS score, to the final CPS.

For instance the first arrow at the top will point down and be green, if the number of vulnerabilities that were scored CVSS 10 before the prioritization has decreased after the prioritization and now has less vulnerabilities that have a CPS of 10.
