Quickly identify and fix known security weaknesses and get actionable remediation advice with management and assessment services of Logisek
The vulnerability assessment (VA), continuous vulnerability assessment (CVA) services or vulnerability management as a service (VMaaS) we provide employ sophisticated techniques to identify and evaluate any existing vulnerabilities in your systems.
These potential weaknesses, in theory, may be leveraged by malicious actors seeking to breach the confidentiality, integrity, and/or availability of your organization's data and resources.
Our approach entails an extensive analysis of systems, scrutinization of applications, and a thorough inspection of network infrastructures to pinpoint possible entry points for intrusion. By harnessing this information, we construct an exhaustive outline of your company's potential attack surface. Our expert advice on how to address these vulnerabilities not only rectifies them but also significantly boosts your organization's overall security posture.

Frequently asked questions about vulnerability assessments
Vulnerability assessment services (often abbreviated as VA services) are a suite of services designed to identify, classify, prioritize, and report vulnerabilities in a system, application, network, or other assets. They help organizations identify security weaknesses that might be exploited by threat actors, with the end goal of proactively improving an organization's security posture.
In some cases, VA services can offer continuous or periodic vulnerability scanning to ensure that previously identified vulnerabilities have been addressed and to discover new ones that might emerge.
At last, vulnerability assessment is often paired with penetration testing. While the former identifies vulnerabilities, the latter simulates real-world attacks to exploit those vulnerabilities and test the effectiveness of security measures. Together, they provide a comprehensive view of an organization's security health.
In a brief analysis, vulnerability is the weakness, the threat is the means that can cause damage, and the risk is the likelihood and magnitude of the damage that can be inflicted.
The terms "vulnerability," "risk," and "threat" refer to different aspects of information security. Although they are interconnected, they have distinct definitions:
Vulnerability: This refers to a weakness or gap in a system, application, or network that can be exploited by a threat. Vulnerabilities can arise from programming errors, operating systems, network equipment, etc.
Risk: This pertains to the likelihood of damage or loss occurring from a specific threat exploiting a specific vulnerability. Risk is often calculated based on the frequency of the threat occurrence, the severity of the vulnerability, and the impact a potential breach would have.
Threat: This refers to something or someone that has the potential to cause harm to a system, network, or organization. Threats can come from various sources, including hackers, natural disasters, mistake-prone users, or internal malicious actors.
Vulnerability management is an ongoing process, while on the other hand, vulnerability assessment usually constitutes a one-time analysis of the systems and networks that make up your information infrastructure. However, some companies may conduct regular vulnerability assessments without delving into their comprehensive management, receiving weekly or monthly reports from automated vulnerability scanning tools.
Moreover, as penetration tests involve the detailed analysis and identification of the weak points of defense mechanisms, systems, networks, and applications in your information infrastructure, these tests are less frequent due to their complexity and requirements.
However, considering that new vulnerabilities appear almost daily, systematic vulnerability scanning (VA) plays a crucial role in maintaining the security of your systems against the most recent threats.
Vulnerability scanning is an automated process aimed at identifying known weaknesses that could theoretically be exploited by malicious users to affect the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of your business's data and services.
On the other hand, a penetration test involves the active exploitation of vulnerabilities by a security consultant, who uses a combination of procedures, standards, experience, skills, and creativity to search for and exploit weaknesses or misconfigurations with the aim of exploiting the systems in any way possible.
Often, a penetration test as a basic step begins with the phase of vulnerability scanning.
Given that penetration tests aim to thoroughly analyze and actively exploit weaknesses in your information infrastructure's protection mechanisms, systems, applications, and networks, they are conducted less frequently. However, as new vulnerabilities emerge daily, regular vulnerability scanning (VA) is vital to ensure that your systems and data remain protected against the latest threats.
The frequency of vulnerability scans can vary greatly and depends on several factors, including the nature of your information systems, the industry your business is in, the security requirements that have been set, and the rate at which changes occur in your operational environment.
As a broad guideline, vulnerability scans are often scheduled at regular intervals, such as weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly, to ensure new vulnerabilities are detected and existing ones are addressed in a timely manner. However, this frequency is not one-size-fits-all and can be adjusted based on your business's unique needs and security objectives.
In determining the appropriate frequency for vulnerability scanning, it's advisable to consult your security team and consider expert recommendations. They can help create a vulnerability scanning schedule that is tailored to the specific requirements and risk profile of your business.
In recent times, due to the rapidly evolving threat landscape, businesses are increasingly leaning towards conducting vulnerability scans on a weekly basis to maintain a robust security posture.
The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is a free, open industrial standard used by Logisek and many other cybersecurity organizations for assessing and communicating the severity and characteristics of vulnerabilities. The CVSS rating ranges from 0.0 to 10.0, and the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) determines the method of measuring the risk rating based on the severity of vulnerabilities. The CVSS v3.1 ratings and their corresponding risk ratings are as follows:
The evaluation and determination of CVSS ratings are based on various characteristics of vulnerabilities, such as impact, exploitability, affected components, and authentication.
The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) provides an updated repository of all known vulnerabilities (CVEs), offering corresponding ratings and other relevant information. The CVE list originates from the MITRE Corporation, a nonprofit organization that initiated the creation of the CVE database in 1999. MITRE provides essential information for each vulnerability and ensures automatic synchronization of its database with the National Vulnerability Database (NVD).
