Vulnerability Assessment




Vulnerability assessment is the key to identifying weakness or cyber security defects across IT systems. Such flaws or security risks can wreak havoc to any organization, ruin its reputation, and expose it to cyber attacks. There is an element of risk for every business, especially after the advent of digital technology that has given rise to another type of business risk in the form of cyber attacks. Many information technology systems are not designed to be secure.  However, there is one technique that can come to your rescue even before there is a security risk. Vulnerability assessment in Dubai can help you identify exposures or vulnerabilities in your network and highlight the overall security posture of the enterprise.

The phase is all about planning and performing vulnerability assessment. It includes gathering key information and defining the scope of activities. It also involves outlining roles and responsibilities and raising awareness about potential vulnerabilities. The idea is to review appropriate policies and procedures and identify the assets. Vulnerability testing points out the risk and defines critical value for each device. It’s critically important to identify how important a device is to your organization, whose vulnerability could potentially threaten your business. It is equally important to understand the user access criteria for that device.
  • Quickly address the vulnerabilities and fix identified security flaws
Review the data from the assessment phase and establish accountability so as to resolve exposures identified in the earlier phase. However, first, an investigation is done to determine the actual need for the service that was responsible for the exposure. Upgrading the system is the next step if the service is Important to the system. Otherwise, the management is informed of any potential risk.
