Vulnerability Scoring

Understanding Vulnerability Scoring: CVSS Explained

Threat actors use vulnerabilities to launch their attacks. By exploiting vulnerabilities, attackers can gain access to systems, networks, and devices. Vulnerabilities enable attackers to steal and ransom sensitive and corporate information, as well as eavesdrop to confidential communication. 

Vulnerabilities can be created as a result of software error, or as forced injections like SQL injection attacks and OS command injections. Other common vulnerability attacks are buffer and integer overflow, which involve the alteration of code by the attacker. Every day, more and more vulnerabilities are discovered. In 2019 alone, over 22,000 vulnerabilities were disclosed.

With so many technology choices, layered with the need to protect your data, many times you can’t rely on your own knowhow to diagnose computer problems, for one. That means you must rely on the in-house expertise of your technology department or third-party service providers.

For most companies, the answer is to play some of your opportunity forward and make strategic choices that may provide competitive advantage regardless of the added expense.
