Vulnerability assessments are designed to give you a better handle on how vulnerable your organization and its system infrastructure are to an attack. Information technologies and supporting personnel are subject to examination — typically through automated scanning — to determine the effectiveness of security measures, identify security deficiencies and confirm the efficacy of remedial measures after implementation.
Understanding your vulnerabilities is a prerequisite for performing a risk assessment and it’s a critical component of risk management. Most vulnerability assessment activities can be automated, so it’s a low-cost yet effective approach to discovering security weaknesses in your organization.
