A network vulnerability assessment is a review of your network intended to find vulnerabilities in your system that could leave your business exposed to data breaches and cyberattacks. It is essentially an audit, comprised of sophisticated tests of your network’s vulnerability measures by identifying weaknesses and mimicking an actual breach.
A network vulnerability assessment is designed to identify potential weaknesses that can compromise the vulnerability of your network, data and devices. Vulnerabilities, breaches and cyberattacks can originate from outside your internal network by cybercriminals, and even within your network due to human error.
Your business may also be required to conduct network vulnerability audits in order to comply with industry regulations such as PCI DSS and HIPAA.
In order to keep your network and data safe, and comply with industry regulations, network vulnerability assessments are intended to answer key questions, such as systems likely to be breached, common entry points, the impact of a cyberattack on assets and what can be done to mitigate attacks.
There are two types of network vulnerability assessments:
In combination, these assessments test the effectiveness of your network vulnerability measures and measure the potential impact of an attack on specific assets.
Unless you have an unlimited budget for information security, you will likely need to limit the scope of your network vulnerability assessment to your most valuable and mission-critical assets, and especially with consideration for those than can affect regulatory and compliance requirements.
We can help you rank your assets based on their value, impact on regulatory compliance, and importance to running your business, and then classify each as critical, major or minor. The value ranking system involves answering the following questions about each asset:
As secure as you believe your network to be, there are likely hidden or less obvious vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Some of your personnel can be increasing risks with poor security habits, such as weak passwords or clicking on links from unknown sources. You may have vendors who have access to your network to conduct business but who have inadequate information security policies.
Cybervulnerability risk can come from anywhere including inside and outside your organization, internal personnel with poor vulnerability habits, or third-party vendors with inadequate information vulnerability policies who have access to your network.
Our comprehensive network vulnerability assessment process includes:
Once your network’s vulnerabilities are identified, we’ll test the adequacy of your security controls and risk mitigation techniques to prevent attackers from exploiting them. This will be done by conducting either a manual penetration test or by using automated ethical hacking tools.
We’ll compile a comprehensive report that includes each vulnerability and what its risks, exploits and value are, along with the likelihood of occurrence, the impact on your business, and recommendations for control policies and procedures.
These controls can be both preventative and detective measures and can include a combination of technical, policy and physical solutions.
