Vulnerability Assessment 

Identifying Security Weaknesses in Your Enterprise

  Provide feedback on this document

Enterprises are always on the lookout for security vulnerabilities—weaknesses that could be exploited by threat sources. A key tool for understanding the true nature of a potential weakness is a vulnerability assessment. These assessments provide a snapshot at a particular time, identifying and analyzing weaknesses present in a technical environment.

ISACA’s white paper, Vulnerability Assessment, addresses the systematic use of these tools: what they are, how they are used and the role they play in ensuring an effective and comprehensive audit and security program. Ultimately, these assessments are critical to identifying the problem; they do not provide the cure.

A well-designed vulnerability management system (or process) is the vehicle for remediation of vulnerabilities, and such a system is driven by the value of the vulnerability assessment itself. Maximize outcomes for your enterprise and download your FREE copy of our white paper today!
