The National Banking and Securities Commission (CNBV) Annex 72 is a collection of 30 Key Risk Indicators (KRI) that establish compliance standards for financial institutions operating in Mexico. The KRIs cover several topics such as secure management, vulnerability management, user and access management, anti-malware and obsolete or outdated software. Tenable.sc provides passive and active detection methods to correlate vulnerability data to align with said KRIs. All financial institutions in Mexico should be prepared to divulge all KRIs to CNBV auditors when requested. This report pulls together several of the key grouping based on assets type and risk levels to help the executive team understand the current state of the Vulnerability Management program.
Financial institutions are naturally at a higher risk of being targeted and attacked. In an effort to manage risk mitigation practices, the executive team assigns the CISO and risk managers with understanding and documenting the security configuration of cyber assets. Knowing the status of compliance scans across the network assists the CISO in assessing where risk has been introduced and identifying the actions needed mitigate said risk. Tenable.sc provides a full suite of risk detection methods starting with active and passive vulnerability detection, along with configuration audit & compliance assessment.
This report provides the executive level view of the KRIs identified in the organization. The report is broken up into four chapters which describe the topics mentioned in each KRI. Each KRI is represented in a separate chapter with separate sections for relevant information., They are, secure management, unsupported products, vulnerability tracking, anti-virus status, and user access assignments. By tracking active, passive, and compliance vulnerability data the CISO is able to successfully report on the CNBV’s requirements for the related KRIs and measure the organization’s compliance.By understanding and identifying the category of assets on the network, the CISO is able coordinate the efforts of a successful vulnerability management program. CNBVAnnex 72 requires knowledge of assets on the network and the appropriate identification, categorization, and protection of these assets. Knowing the types of assets on the network also aids in identifying known vulnerabilities in administrative, accounting, and business communications systems. Vulnerability assessments are required to be performed frequently. Similarly, CNBV requires software to be maintained at a level supported by the supplier.
This report is available in the Tenable.sc feed, which is a comprehensive collection of dashboards, reports, Assurance Report Cards, and assets. The report can be easily located in the Tenable.sc feed under the Compliance category. The report requirements are as follows:
- Tenable.sc 5.12.0
- Nessus 8.7.1
- Compliance Data
This report provides the organization with a clear and simplified method to identify and establish compliance according to Annex 72 by CNBV. Tenable.sc enables the executive team to Analyze data and identify the non-compliant KRI’s. Through this process the executive team is able to complete the Fix and Measuring steps of the Cyber Exposure Lifecycle. Tenable.sc is the On-prem solution for understanding the whole picture of the network, while keeping the data under the organization’s control. Built on leading Nessus technology, Tenable.sc discovers unknown assets and vulnerabilities, and monitors unexpected network changes before they turn into breaches.
This report contains:
Secure Configuration: This chapter shows the executive team the level of secure configuration within the network. By first showing hosts that have had patches available for longer than 30 days. The chapter quickly establishes easy to address solutions to existing risks. Later, unsupported Microsoft operating systems, compliance Microsoft workstation results and database vulnerabilities are shown to further establish a level of secure configuration that is needed based on CNBV’s Annex 72.
Unsupported Product Summary: This chapter shows the executive team the overall presence of unsupported products in the network. The organization has a responsibility to maintain software, operating systems, and databases at a level supported by the supplier. The chapter lays out unsupported applications, OSes and databases per the requirements of the CNBV.
Vulnerability & Anti-Virus Management: This chapter tracks the organization’s overall state of vulnerabilities and status of anti-virus software detected. By first showing a trend line comparing current and outdated anti-virus counts and then showing outdated anti-virus that’s been detected. The chapter establishes how at-risk hosts may be. The chapter also shows mitigation efforts and the top most vulnerable hosts.
User and Access Management: CNBV Annex 72 requires the understanding of user privileges and access rights. Tenable.sc includes many indicators of user access and activity. This chapter allows a risk manager to easily understand the user privileges within the organization and areas where rights can be tightened.
