The Executive Summary Report

The Executive Summary Report shows you a summary of vulnerabilities by assets or by groups and by vulnerability class, as well as showing your overall security profile. For those customers using both WhiteHat Dynamic and Sentinel Source, this report will cover both dynamic and static test results. The Executive Summary Report displays a summary of the open vulnerabilities in four sections.

Vulnerability Count

The following table shows the number of vulnerabilities for each site, broken down by rating type.

Appendix - Vulnerability Level Definitions (by Risk)

This section details how the vulnerability levels are defined, risk Levels for the WhiteHat Sentinel Source solution are based on the OWASP risk rating methodology, based on the standard risk model (Risk = Likelihood x Impact) with several factors contributing to the likelihood and impact. The following tables show how the vulnerability ratings are calculated in The Executive Summary Report.

impact level table
  • The Impact can be broken down into the Technical Impact and Business Impact.

    • Technical impact considers the traditional areas of security: confidentiality, integrity, availability, and accountability.

    • The business impact stems from the technical impact and consider things such as: financial damage, reputational damage, non-compliance, and privacy violations.

After scoring the Likelihood and Impact, the Risk Rating is determined using the following table:
