Re: Vulnerability Scanning - Prioritising Remediation
From: J Teddy <jteddylists () gmail com>

For those interested, I have uploaded the draft I am currently working
on google docs.

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RN6H3FcW48vgp_JJXkvE4lc635s9SQRsEzJh-V3GZS8/edit?hl=en_US

There are a few documents feeding into this, so I hope process comes
across clear.

My goal is to create a process to prioritise remediation effort, so on
our next VA scan if we only have the time and budget to do X amount,
we have a repeateable process on what to remediate that any one can
use.

I'm currently documenting how to prioritise remediation efforts from
my last vulnerability scan.  As my assets have all had information
risk assessments conducted, I can easily calculate my CVSS score using
the CVSS2 calculator.

I then started thinking about compensating controls in my network
where I could possibly lower the priority of the remediation.  For
example the SSH vulnerability priority may be lowered as there is a
signature for prevention on my IPS.

The question I can not answer is if my IPS has prevention for such a
signature, and I’m running a vulnerability scan through that IPS, will
my IPS block those packets, with the end result being my VA scan does
not detect the vulnerability?

Thanks.
