New Online Tool Helps (ISC)² Members Manage Vulnerabilities cvvstorecc, FreshBasecc
(ISC)² members now have a new tool to help corral vulnerabilities and published threats found throughout the Internet. Vulnerability Central is powered by Cytenna’s tool, ThreatRank, and is the first module of a larger Security Central portal. New modules are scheduled for release throughout the coming years.
With this new online tool, system administrators and other information security professionals can: -Check in to see the latest vulnerabilities and threat reports in one place.-Receive early notification of vulnerabilities to be better prepared to respond. -Research and prioritize detailed vulnerabilities, which are categorized based on criticality. -Filter vulnerabilities based on the type of assets being managed, such as showing Microsoft and Cisco vulnerabilities, but not Unix. -Provide a quick response for published Threat Reports.-Follows links to relevant information security news articles.
The power of Vulnerability Central is using proprietary, state-of-the-art algorithms to aggregate, categorize and prioritize vulnerabilities affecting tens of thousands of products; then putting them all into one place. This can save a lot of time for our membership that need, or can use, this data.
The tool uses Single Sign-On to provide the authentication for the members using their (ISC)² member login (meaning no extra accounts to create/manage) and to link them with their profile. For more details, please log in to Vulnerability Central using your member login credentials at vulnerability.isc2.org. -Erich Kron, CISSP-ISSAP, HCISPP, Director of Membership Relations and Services, (ISC)²A version of this blog will appear in the May/June 2015 issue of (ISC)²’s InfoSecurity Professional Magazine.
