SANS Vulnerability Management


Policy & Standards: Policy and standards are undocumented or in a state of change.

Context: Contextual data (eg, asset detail, ownership relationships) are available from multiple data sources with varying degrees of accuracy.


Automated: Infrastructure and applications are scanned ad-hoc or irregularly for vulnerability details, or vulnerability details are acquired from the system themselves as time permits.

Manual: Manual testing or review occurs when specifically required or requested.

External: External vulnerability reports and disclosures are handled on a case-by-case basis.


Prioritisation: Prioritisation is performed based on CVSS/Severity designations provided by identification technology or indicated in reports

Root Cause Analysis: Root cause analysis is performed based on out-of-the-box information such as standard remediation/patch reports or other categorised reports (eg, OWASP Top 10 Category).


Metrics & Reporting: Simple, point-in-time operational metrics are available primarily sourced from out-of-the-box reports leveraging minimal customization or filtering.
