A vulnerability assessment identifies and classifies security holes in a computer network infrastructure. Vulnerability assessments can also forecast the effectiveness of countermeasures and evaluate their actual effectiveness after they are put into use.
Vulnerability assessments define and classify networks, assign relative levels of importance to resources, identify potential threats to each resource, develop a strategy to deal with the most serious potential problems first, and define and implement ways to minimize the consequences if an attack occurs.
