Using the Dashboard
All existing Risk Meters appear on your Dashboard page, providing a quick way to assess risk in any area of your organization. The dashboard is RBAC dependent, so only Risk Meters you have access to will appear.
There are several ways to quickly organize your dashboard via out of the box settings.
In the upper right hand corner, users can quickly:
- search for Risk Meters
- organize Risk Meters in alphabetical/reverse alphabetical order
- organize using the Score (low to high; high to low)
- select the green, yellow, and red dots to remove risk meters of that score range from view.
The above dashboard is organized by score (high to low) and only has the red dot fully colored in. This means the dashboard only displays high risk Risk Meters (anything above 660 Risk Meter score).
Teams can also switch between the “Card View” and the “List View” using the final view option in the upper right hand corner. The screenshots above display the traditional “Card View”. The below screenshot shows the List View, along with the Hierarchical Risk Meters feature. HRM allows the creation of Parent-Child relationships.

The Risk Meter score and color scheme provide an easy way to focus on Asset Groups that pose the highest risk to your organization. Each risk meter is assigned a risk score, which comes with a correlating color:
Green = Risk Meter score between 0-333
Yellow/Amber = Risk Meter score between 334-666
Red = Risk Meter score between 667-1000
Using the Dashboard page you can easily see the cached summary details of the number of assets and vulnerabilities for each group. In the Card View, clicking the dropdown and selecting “Show Counts” gives an additional wealth of information related to the Risk Meter. This information includes:
Assets - the number of assets included in the group
Vulnerabilities - the number of vulnerabilities that exist on those assets
Unique Fixes - the number of unique patches outstanding for the vulnerabilities on the assets contained in the Risk Meter
Top Priority - the number of Top Priority vulnerabilities within the overall vulnerability count
Active Internet Breaches - the number of vulnerabilities within the group that are part of Active Internet Breach activity in the wild
Easily Exploitable - the number of vulnerabilities within the group or which there are known exploit kits
Predicted Exploitable - the number of vulnerabilities predicted to become exploitable
Malware Exploitable - the number of vulnerabilities actively exploited with Malware including Trojans, Worms, Ransomware, and more
Popular Targets - the number of vulnerabilities that are also seen in high volume by other Cisco Vulnerability Management clients
In Card View, selecting “Show Trendline” displays a graph showing the Risk Meter’s Risk Score progression over the last 90 day period.
Note: If you are leveraging the List View, the “Show Counts” or “Show Trendline” options will not be available without hovering over the row.
"Edit" in the Card View and the blue pencil icon in the List View will take you to a prompt to edit the Risk Meter name and associated permissions.
Live Risk Meter scores, vulnerability, and fix data can be accessed by clicking on the Risk Meter Name from the Dashboard to go to the Explore view. A summary of data is available as part of Reporting via the Risk Meter. Top Fixes navigates to the 10 largest score reductions with 1, 2, or 3 fixes for the particular Risk Meter selected.
