Why CVE is Like the Webster's Dictionary of Known Vulnerabilities | Intel Business

Published on 11 Nov 2021, 6:00
There are infinite vulnerabilities out there that make us susceptible to instances of cyberattack, and as of this year, we’re on track to having identified 20,000 of them. While there’s a whole risk mitigation ecosystem in place, CVE (formerly known as the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Program) has played a huge role in establishing a dictionary-esque database with IDs and definitions for each known vulnerability.

On today’s episode of What That Means, Camille is joined by returning guest Katie Trimble-Noble (Director, PSIRT & Bug Bounty at Intel) to describe the critical nature of CVE in greater detail.

You’ll learn:
► The origins and evolution of CVE (formerly known as the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures Program)
► Why CVE matters, and what it does and doesn’t do
► How NVD (the National Vulnerability Database) and CVSS (the Common Vulnerability Scoring System) differ from and apply to CVE
► How risk severity is actually scored Who and what CVE Naming Authorities (CNA) are, and why they’re important
► And more

Really interesting stuff, so tune in!
