How is a risk meter score determined?

The overall Risk Meter score is an average of all the NON-Zero score Assets included in that group. The average is rounded to the nearest ten using standard rounding rules. Risk Meter coloring is fixed based on the score values shown here:

  • 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 only based on the highest vulnerability. 

For additional details see the page on Asset Scoring

From the Dashboard, it is easy to a quick snapshot of risk posture across the organization based on the Risk Meters displayed there.
