Session Title
Contextual Vulnerability Rating for Effective Vulnerability Management
Executive Summary and Learning Objectives
The information security threat landscape has never been more hostile, and many organizations are
struggling with how to find time to effectively defend against determined attackers when the odds
seem so stacked against them. Unfortunately, many organizations are set back even further through
over-reliance on the results of security scanning tools and the ratings those tools apply to
discovered vulnerabilities. This presentation discusses the dangers of relying on these scanner
risk ratings, and how a more contextually aware approach can result in improved results and less
energy expended on low-value activities.
Session Attendees Will Learn How To: 
·Identify inconsistencies in the scanner-centric model
·Clarify organizational objectives for risk ratings
·Develop and execute a contextual vulnerability rating program
·Improve credibility with IT Operations through accurate vulnerability ratings
·Communicate more clearly with Executive Management on Vulnerability Management
