Vulnerability Assessment

Wilson Consulting Group’s cyber security Vulnerability Assessment are designed to evaluate any threats and vulnerabilities to an organization’s information systems and environment.

What is Vulnerability Assessment?

Vulnerability Assessment is the practice of identifying, classifying, remediating, and mitigating vulnerabilities within an organization’s network. This process is a key feature of several compliance, audit, and risk management frameworks. To minimize the window of opportunity for attackers, it is important to continuously assess and act on new information to identify vulnerabilities and remediate them.

Some of the different types of security vulnerability assessment scans include the following:

  • Network-based scans - identify possible network security attacks. This type of security vulnerability assessment also detects vulnerable systems on wired or wireless networks.
  • Host-based scans - locate and identify vulnerabilities in servers, workstations or other network hosts. This type examines ports and services that may also be visible to network-based scans.
  • Wireless network scans - focus on points of attack in the wireless network infrastructure.
  • Application scans - test websites to detect known software vulnerabilities and incorrect configurations in network or web applications.
  • Database scans - identify the weak points in a database so as to prevent malicious attacks, such as SQL injection attacks

Securing your organization’s resources from inside and outside threats requires a frequent and proactive security Vulnerability Assessment. The benefits of security vulnerability testing include, but are not limited to:

  • Identification of security exposures before potential attackers. Early detection gives the opportunity to address such issues before being exploited by adversaries at a huge cost to the company’s assets and reputation.
  • Provision of an updated company network map, as well as an updated inventory of the devices on the company network.
  • An assessment of your company’s security posture.
  • A multi-layered evaluation of your infrastructure to understand threats from internal and external attack points.
  • Ensured compliance with industry regulations, which helps to avoid significant fees for noncompliance.
  • Vulnerability scans, which demonstrate the number of exposures associated with systems over a given period.
