Vulnerability assessments are designed to give you a better handle on how vulnerable your organization and its system infrastructure are to an attack. Information technologies and supporting personnel are subject to examination — typically through automated scanning — to determine the effectiveness of security measures, identify security deficiencies and confirm the efficacy of remedial measures after implementation.
