Vulnerability Assessment

Vulnerability Assessments are performed for a variety of reasons. Often organizations choose a Vulnerability Assessment because they know their security posture needs improvement, but they are not sure where to start and need some specialized advice.

We will first identify the most severe issues and recommend mitigation solutions. Later phases will target less severe issues to lower impact and minimize the overall risks.

Additionally, Vulnerability Assessments can be a requirement for some standards like PCI DSS that ask merchants to regularly perform tests according to the systems in place.

Minimization or decrease of risks depend on many factors, such as other interchangeable vulnerabilities, location of devices, access controls in place, etc. As an added value, wizlynx group will use our experience and expertise to analyze and consult your organization on current vulnerabilities, and recommend solutions to decrease your risks.

The following list represents techniques that can be performed during the assessment, depending on your environment and needs:

  • Unknown and known asset identification
  • Credentialed or network based vulnerability discovery
  • Sensitive content auditing
  • Selective re-scan by host, net, sub-net, etc.
  • Authentication weaknesses
  • Botnet/Malicious Process/Anti-virus Auditing
  • Compliance Auditing (FFIEC, FISMA, CyberScope, GLBA, HIPAA/ HITECH, NERC, PCI, SCAP, SOX)
