Continuous Asset Evaluation, Situational Awareness and Risk Scoring reference architecture (CAESARS) - a solution for making assessments on a continuous or nearly continuous basis, which is a prerequisite for moving IT security management from isolated assessments that support infrequent authorization decisions to continuous risk management.
