These include a set of supplemental metrics such as Safety, Automatable, Recovery, Value Density, Vulnerability Response Effort, and Provider Urgency, designed to provide a more granular and accurate vulnerability assessment.
Furthermore, FIRST introduces a new nomenclature to enumerate CVSS scores, emphasizing the fact that CVSS is more than just the Base score. This shift reinforces the importance of considering Environmental and Threat Metrics in the vulnerability assessment process.
