Based on your research and analysis, you may determine that a Threat or Vulnerability represents greater or lesser risk to your organization. When this happens, you can adjust the Threat TIC score properties individually for the source, criticality, or classifications.
Adjusting the TIC properties impacts the Threat and Vulnerability score of all elements, starting with Threats and Vulnerabilities and cascading through network elements and collections.
NOTE: For Vulnerabilities, you can only adjust the source and classification properties. You cannot adjust criticality since that is derived from the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS).
IMPORTANT: Adjusting the TIC Score can be very taxing on the system. Use this feature sparingly or only when necessary.
To adjust the TIC score properties for a Threat or Vulnerability, follow the steps below.
1. Select the Threat or Vulnerability from the left side panel of the Element Details page.
2. When the page loads, scroll down the page to Threat Properties.
3. Once you've found the Threat Properties section, note the TIC score for the Threat or Vulnerability's properties (source, classification, and criticality). If you would like to adjust any of these properties, click on Edit.
4. The window will display sliders to adjust the score for each of the properties.
NOTE: When adjusting Vulnerability properties, you will only be able to change the source and classification, not criticality.
For this example, we'll change the Threat properties to:
When you are finished, click Save.
5. Next, note that the TIC scores for each of the properties now reflect the new values.
6. Finally, also note that the new numbers impacted the overall TIC score for the Threat at the top of the page.
In this example, the overall TIC score before the adjustments was 69.
After the TIC score properties were adjusted, the score changed to 95.
