Getting Started with Cisco Vulnerability Management

Once you have access to Cisco Vulnerability Management, you can start exploring and learning about the platform. Check out the attached pdf below for the complete Getting Started Guide!


Implementing a platform like Cisco Vulnerability Management that offers so much in terms of value and functionality can be a truly daunting task. Even with training and an abundance of help articles that are publicly available, having a rounded understanding of the platform can still feel elusive. This document aims to serve as a guide to introduce concepts that are fundamental to working in the platform, as well as instructions for carrying out some common tasks and activities in Cisco Vulnerability Management. As much as possible, topics build on already covered ideas and so should be of great value to a person who has minimal exposure to the Cisco Vulnerability Management platform. For individuals already familiar with Cisco Vulnerability Management, it can still serve as a reference to review a forgotten concept, or how a particular task is done.

  1. Overview of the Cisco Vulnerability Management platform - Dashboard, Explore, AppSec, Settings
