Vulnerability Management Defined Vulnerability Management consists of the end-to-endprocesses from discovering your network, to assessingyour assets, analyzing the results and remediating yourexposures3

Vulnerability Management Defined by Gartner4

Vulnerability Management Goals Proactively identify vulnerabilities in hopes ofremediating them before they are exploitedmanually (hacker) or automatically (worm / virus) Accurately understand the risk to the enterpriseso mitigation can be prioritized– At any given point in time– Trending over time Augment, complement, & enhance other securitysolution investments (e.g. IDS, AV, FWs, etc.)5

Vulnerability Management Best Practices1. Know Your Network2. Automate– Assess Consistently– Assess Regularly3. Integrate4. Distribute Use– Individuals– Scan Engines5. Report on risk and vulnerabilities6

Step 1: Know your Network Map your network, discover your hosts– Much of the network risk is introduced by unknowndevices or devices that are not owned / companymanaged Examples: pseudo-appliances, consultant’s & contractor’slaptops, non-standard or approved IP devices Deploy vulnerability scanners where necessary– Don’t limit your ability to assess risk to your enterpriseby not having vulnerability scan engines where theyare required– Must put dedicated scanners on the Internet, in eachDMZ, and on the internal network7

Step 2: Automate - Assess Consistently VM can be used to secure your enterpriseproactively if you scan consistently Inconsistent scanning leads to false positives andfalse negatives Automation Ö Consistency– Scan for the same vulnerabilities (plus newvulnerabilities)– Scan the same ports / services– Scan at the same speed / network impact– Scan using the same scanner from the same networkvantage point8

Step 2: Automate - Assess Often Vulnerability Management can be a proactive securitysolution – if performed regularly– Must perform regular (e.g. weekly) assessments to react toaccurate and current vulnerability data– Automate your network discovery and vulnerability scan tasks Imbed Vulnerability Management in existing and newprocesses– Device build processes– Monthly maintenance processes– Change management processes 80% of Qualys customers run recurring scans at leastmonthly 60% of Qualys customers run recurring scans weekly9

Step 3: Integrate Your VM Solution Vulnerability data, when integrated with othersecurity and operations tools and information, canbe very powerful– Enhance your IDS investment; eliminate false positivesby integrating VM data with IDS data– Integrate your VM solution with your changemanagement / trouble ticketing solution or processes– Further automate patch application / patchmanagement / configuration management When missing patches or non-standard configurations arefound on select devices, automate the remediation– Integrate to perform network quarantine10

Step 4: Distribute Use - Individuals Enterprise Vulnerability Management tasksshould be performed by more than just thesecurity team Use ‘least privileges’ to assign select rights to:––––Internal AuditSystems and Network AdministratorsDesktop Management teamsTechnical and non-technical individuals11

Step 4: Distribute Use – Scan Engines Vulnerabilities must be assessed from theindependent 3rd party Internet perspective– ‘script kiddies’ are scanning you, shouldn’t you knowwhat they can see? Vulnerabilities must be assessed from the DMZs– Need localized, authenticated scanning of these assetsfor full knowledge of vulnerabilities Vulnerabilities must be assessed from the Internalnetwork– Majority of devices and least number of security layersreside here12

Step 5: Report on Vulnerabilities AND Risk Vulnerability Risk– Vulnerabilities are exposures on assets due to softwareweakness or device misconfiguration– Risk considers the value of the asset and the mitigatingfactors in place against the vulnerability Example: same critical windows patch missing on2 hosts; exploitable over port 80– Host 1: Corporate Web Server– Host 2: Joe User’s Laptop– The vulnerability on the 2 hosts are the same, but therisk to the organization is much higher on the corporateweb server13
