Vulnerability Assessment Training FAQs

  • What is vulnerability assessment?

    The process of defining, identifying, classifying and prioritising what vulnerabilities are in your system.

  • What is the purpose of a vulnerability assessment?

    The purpose of this assessment is to find out what vulnerabilities may be within your system in time to fix them.

  • What is the difference between vulnerability assessment and penetration testing?

    A vulnerability assessment scans for known vulnerabilities, while a penetration test tries to actively exploit and fix the weaknesses.

  • Can I learn vulnerability assessment online?

    Yes! We know your busy work schedule may prevent you from getting to one of our classrooms which is why we offer convenient online training to meet your needs wherever you want. This course is available in class and live online.
