What is a vulnerability assessment

A vulnerability assessment is a systematic process of identifying, quantifying and prioritising vulnerabilities within a computer system, network, application or other IT infrastructure.

The primary goal of a vulnerability assessment is to discover weaknesses that could be exploited by malicious actors to compromise the security of the system or environment.

Vulnerability assessments provide valuable insights that enable organisations to take proactive steps to mitigate these vulnerabilities before they are exploited.

Our method

Blackfoot’s vulnerability assessment services enable you to proactively identify and address potential system vulnerabilities before they are exploited. By identifying vulnerabilities in your network and applications, you can take proactive steps to strengthen your security posture and protect your critical assets.

Identification of vulnerabilities

Using a combination of automated tools and manual techniques, Blackfoot vulnerability assessments identify weaknesses within the target system. These vulnerabilities could stem from factors such as misconfigurations, outdated software, missing patches, poor access controls and insecure coding practices.

Scanning and testing

Our automated vulnerability scanning tools are employed to scan networks, systems and applications for known vulnerabilities. These tools check for common weaknesses and misconfigurations frequently exploited by attackers.

Assessment of potential impact

The assessment considers the potential impact of each vulnerability if exploited. This involves evaluating factors such as the ease of exploitation, the data or systems at risk and the potential consequences of a successful attack.

Risk prioritisation

Vulnerabilities are assigned risk ratings based on their severity, exploitability and potential impact. This allows organisations to prioritise their efforts and address the most critical vulnerabilities first.

Assessment reporting

After the assessment is complete, a detailed report is generated. This report includes a list of identified vulnerabilities, risk ratings and recommended remediation steps. It serves as a roadmap for improving security.

Remediation and mitigation

The organisation’s IT and security teams can use the assessment report to address the identified vulnerabilities. Remediation efforts may involve patching software, reconfiguring systems and strengthening access controls.

Ongoing monitoring

Vulnerability assessments are not one-time activities. Systems and environments change over time, so regular assessments are essential to identify new vulnerabilities introduced by updates, changes and new technology deployments.
