Security Dashboard

Introduction

In the CoreStack application, the Security Executive Dashboard shows vulnerability and threat data in a graphical format for various accounts.

This user guide will focus on the Security Executive Dashboard, and how users can leverage it to understand their cloud security and visualize relevant data in meaningful ways.

Security Executive Dashboard Overview

The dashboard is divided into the following sections:

  • Vulnerability Insights:
    • Vulnerability Trend: This graph shows the count of vulnerabilities and severities detected over the past six months.
    • Vulnerability Severity Summary by Accounts: This graph shows the trends in vulnerability count and severity count for different accounts. The severity is divided into these categories: critical, high, medium, low, and none.
    • Vulnerability by Region: This map shows the vulnerability count per geographic region.
  • Threats:
    • Threats Trend: This graph shows the threat counts and their severity levels for the past six months.
    • Threats Severity Summary By Account: This graph shows the trends in threat count and severity count for different accounts. The severity is divided into high, medium, and low categories.
    • Threats By Region: This map shows the threat count per geographic region.
    • Threats Concentration by Provider: This chart shows the threat count for the current month as per the cloud providers and cloud resources.
  • Config Violations:
    • Config Violations Trend: This widget shows the severity count of config violations for the past six months. Severity can be low, high, or medium. Users can also view the total count of config violations here.
    • Config Violations Severity Summary By Account: This widget shows the account-wise config violation count and severity count for the current month.
    • Config Violation by Region: This widget shows the count of config violations for the current month as per region. Violations are shown as bubbles on the map, and the bubble sizes increase to reflect the increase in violation count, and vice versa. Different cloud providers are shown in different colors on the map.
    • Config Concentration by Cloud Provider: This widget shows a sankey chart with the count of config violation for the current month. The sankey chart shows service providers on the left side and resource types on the right side.

The violated controls are classified as High, Medium, and Low severity. The data in this widget is shown in tabular format and users can view the control violation percentage and score for the respective cloud account.
    • 5 Cloud Account Control Violations by Severity: This widget shows the top five cloud accounts with the least compliance control coverage.
