What is a Vulnerability Assessment?

A vulnerability assessment is the process of discovering, documenting, and quantifying the current security vulnerabilities found within an environment. A vulnerability assessment is intended to be a comprehensive evaluation of the security of your vital infrastructure, endpoints, and IT assets. It gives insight into system weaknesses and recommends the appropriate remediation procedures to either eliminate the issue or reduce the weakness to an acceptable level of risk.

Vulnerability assessments typically follow a structured methodology, which should include the:

  • Identification and cataloging of assets (systems, infrastructure, resources, etc.) in an environment;
  • Discovery and prioritization of the security vulnerabilities or potential threats to each asset; and
  • Reporting on the recommended remediation or mitigation of vulnerabilities to reach an acceptable risk level.

What is a Penetration Test?

A penetration test attempts to simulate the actions of an external or internal attacker who is trying to breach the information security of an organization. The individual performing the test uses a combination of tools and techniques and attempts to bypass the existing security controls of the target organization. The goal is to gain access to sensitive systems and information.

The methodology followed by penetration testers is inherently less structured to allow for rapid adjustment while testing the environment. However, most penetration methodologies typically follow

these key steps:

  • Determination of the scope and testing objectives;
  • Targeted information gathering and reconnaissance;
  • Identification and exploitation of weakness to gain and escalate access;
  • Demonstrate completion of the testing objective; and
  • Clean up and reporting
