What is a Common Vulnerability Scoring System

We explain the Common Vulnerability Scoring System

This week Ray from JUMPSEC’s expert penetration testing team talks about Common Vulnerability Scoring System.

Video transcript:

“Common Vulnerability Scoring System provides a way to capture the principal characteristics of a vulnerability and produce a numerical score reflecting its severity. The numerical score can then be translated into a qualitative representation (such as low, medium, high, and critical) to help organizations properly assess and prioritize their vulnerability management processes. We use this scoring system for our Managed Vulnerability Scanning service.”
