A vulnerability assessment is the process in which security weaknesses are identified, categorized, and prioritized. These vulnerabilities can be due to misconfigurations, lax policies, or software bugs. The ability to catch them before a malicious party does is the difference between thwarting or becoming the victim of a cyberattack.

In order to protect your business from cyber threats you need to know where they will come from. Assessments should document and evaluate your business’s current security standing. This includes indicating all system weaknesses and mitigation methods to correct the issues found. With this information you can then focus your resources in the areas that need it most.
Vulnerability assessments are also a requirement for most compliance standards (HIPPA, PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, NIST, etc.).
