Multiple elements must be included in an application risk-scoring model—which must also be easy to implement and use.

Find out why simply assigning a severity rating is inadequate and how other models are too complex for real-world use cases. A different industry risk-scoring model is needed—and one that is derived from the broader cybersecurity community.

Discover how Contrast is developing an open-source risk-scoring algorithm that will be used as the basis for its RiskScore. Attendees of the webinar will learn:

  • Why current risk-scoring models are inadequate
  • What elements are needed in a risk-scoring model
  • What elements are included in the initial risk-scoring algorithm
  • How the DevOps and AppSec communities can contribute to the open-source algorithm
  • What vulnerability types pose the highest risk today and how they have trended over the past 12 months (Contrast RiskScore)
  • How to apply the risk-scoring model in different environments
  • Future areas of exploration around attack types and application languages
