Vulnerability Assessments

Assessing Risk Exposure

Mitigating Risk

Vulnerability assessments is the process of identifying the security holes in a computer, network, or application, with the goal of remediating unacceptable risk exposure. The vulnerability assessment process, which is a critical part of organizational risk management, includes:

  • Cataloging organizational information systems and their component assets
  • Determining the relative effect on the organization of a loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability of those assets
  • Identifying the vulnerabilities or potential threats to each resource
  • Determining a cost-effective risk mitigation path

Advanced Toolsets

Aerstone’s vulnerability assessments are fueled by a sophisticated understanding of information security. We understand that complicated systems frequently face complex threats. To ensure a full view into system risk, we leverage a combination of advanced open source, commercial, and custom developed software. For some customers we employ non-technical vulnerability assessment techniques, including social engineering tactics like spear phishing, media dropping, and pretext calling — as delineated in the rules of engagement for each assessment.

The Aerstone Test Team is composed of a mix of expertise and experience in IT security, all dedicated to security assessment projects and engagements. Team members maintain industry certifications in security including CISSP, C|EH, GPEN, and GCFE, and undergo annual training to stay current with the latest tools and techniques employed by security professionals.
