IT-Grundschutz BSI-100-2 Report

by Stephanie Dunn
August 14, 2015

The IT-Grundschutz Standards and Catalogues are a set of recommendations designed to assist an organization in achieving an appropriate security level for information throughout an organization. The Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) in Germany develops and maintains the BSI Standards, of which IT-Grundschutz is a part of. The Standards and Catalogues provide methods, processes, procedures, and approaches to information security management, risk analysis, and business continuity management.

The BSI-100-2 Report provides details on the vulnerability status of specific services and devices, such as FTP, Telnet, password audits, firewall, and other policy and services audit checks. The devices and services presented within this report can be considered areas of high risk to an organization. This report can assist the analyst by providing a comprehensive view of outstanding risks that need to be addressed. SecurityCenter Continuous View (CV) provides the analyst with the most current information of existing vulnerabilities that need to be remediated, and can aid in actively identify and responding to threats quickly and efficiently. This report compliments the IT-Grundschutz BSI-100-2 Dashboard, which can be found here: IT-Grundschutz BSI-100-2 Dashboard.

The report is available in the SecurityCenter Feed, a comprehensive collection of dashboards, reports, assurance report cards and assets. The report can be easily located in the SecurityCenter Feed under the category Compliance & Configuration Assessment. This report requires the IT-Grundschutz BSI Audit File along with the following below:

  • SecurityCenter 4.8.2
  • Nessus 6.2.1
  • Local Checks

SecurityCenter Continuous View (CV) is the market-defining continuous network monitoring platform, which includes active vulnerability detection with Nessus. SecurityCenter CV assists organizations by alerting to vulnerabilities concerns, which aids in actively identify and responding to threats quickly and efficiently. By using SecurityCenter CV, an organization will obtain the most comprehensive and integrated view of its network.
