How is a risk meter score determined?

The overall Risk Meter score is an average of all the non-zero score assets that are included in the group. The average is rounded to the nearest ten using standard rounding rules. Risk meter coloring is based on the following score values:

  • Green = Score between 0 - 333
  • Yellow = Score between 334 - 666
  • Red = Score between 667 - 1000

Each asset's risk score in Cisco Vulnerability Management is based on the single greatest vulnerability found on the asset. While each individual asset in the Asset Group will have any number of vulnerabilities associated with it, the asset score is based on only the highest vulnerability.

From the Dashboard, it is easy to get a quick snapshot of risk posture across the organization based on the risk meters that display.
