What They Are
Vulnerability Assesments are usually carried out between or prior to penetration tests. Vulnerability Assesments give a shallow overview to your security situation, while penetration tests are far more in depth and will highlight more potential vulnerabilities.
A Vulnerability Assesment will show potential weak areas that could be utilised by a hacker, they will generally report unpatched Operating Systems, out of date applications and poor firewall/network configuration.
The report file submitted to the company will include charts of the total number of weaknesses found and rank them according to how severe they are, severity being determined by how much damage they could allow in the event of a malicious cyber attack.
The report file will then include advice on how to mitigate these threats and any other additional information.
Vulnerability Assesments are normally recommended to be carried out at least twice a year in order to include information regarding newly discovered threats and to compensate for any minor changes in your systems or network
