Understanding your threats
Understanding the threats you face and where your cyber defences are most at risk of being breached is critical to securing your organisation against cyber attacks.
Most attacks exploit two types of vulnerability: technical and human.
New technical vulnerabilities are discovered and exploited by criminals every day. Previously patched vulnerabilities can also be reintroduced into systems by updates and reconfigurations.
A programme of regular vulnerability scanning is a critical component of a risk-based approach to security: it identifies security vulnerabilities in workstations, internal and external networks, and communications equipment.
It is an automated activity that scans infrastructure targets for known vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, enabling you to bolster your defences where you most need to.
