The Virginia Tech IT Security Laboratory is developing an experimental risk scoring system.  The goal of this system is to give risk scores to IT assets and help system managers and administrators improve scores over time.  

An alternate goal of this system is to improve relations between security teams and operational teams.  All too often, security teams submit vulnerability reports or assessments to IT Managers that may not positively encourage their teams to take action.  We hope that risk scores will be more encouraging and seen in a positive light.  Operational teams will be able to see their scores and work to improve them over time and constantly obtain slightly better scores (and security).  They will also be able to have friendly competitions with other areas across campus to see who can achieve the best score!
