Application security debt can quickly overwhelm security and development teams. This translates into greater risk. For example, research reveals that the average application has 20 vulnerabilities in development and 4 in production. To address this growing challenge, Contrast Security recently released the Contrast RiskScore™ that assigns a numerical score using an algorithm consisting of four elements. The reality is that certain vulnerabilities pose greater risk than others, and moreover vulnerability risk changes over time. This presentation will explain how developers and security practitioners can use the RiskScore to pinpoint the risk of vulnerability types and prioritize vulnerability management based on that risk. In doing so, they can reduce their security debt and mean time to remediate (MTTR) vulnerabilities while managing down their risk.
