It’s a new year! And I would guess it will probably be filled with new and interesting ideas on mining and visualizing data so we can all make better security decisions. In honor of another year having come and gone, we’re taking a look back at our top blog posts of 2012, so you can catch up on some of the information you might have missed throughout the year.

  1. Introducing RiskDB – Learn more about our new tool, RiskDB: a free, centralized, and open repository of vulnerabilities sourced from public databases. You’ll want to bookmark this site for reference.Risk I/O: Vulnerability Intelligence Platform
  2. The Scanner that Cried Wolf – Dealing with false positives during a vulnerability assessment is a fact of life. Learn how to decrease the amount of false positives that are produced by automated tools and how you can use our custom fields feature to overcome them.
  3. Security Intelligence != SIEM – We love taking part in industry-related conferences. Learn about our experience at Metricon 6.5, RSA and BSides conferences in San Francisco, and how these conferences challenged us to start thinking differently about Security Intelligence.

  9. The Real Value of Precognition – In this blog post, we discuss predictive analytics and its value to vulnerability management.
  10. Big Data, Better Security – Risk I/O’s Ryan Huber provides a recap on his recent Cloud Mafia presentation, which discusses how using big data can provide better security.
