Vulnerability scanning is a process of identifying security vulnerabilities in an organisation’s systems, networks, and applications. This process helps to identify potential exploits that could be used by cyber attackers to gain unauthorized access to an organisation’s assets.
IT for Business recommends vulnerability scanning for businesses as a key component of their cyber security strategy. By regularly scanning their systems, networks, and applications for vulnerabilities, businesses can identify potential threats and take steps to mitigate them before they can be exploited by cyber attackers. This can help to prevent cyber attacks and reduce the risk of a data breach, which can result in significant financial losses, damage to reputation, and legal liabilities.
In summary, risk assessment and dark web monitoring are important processes for identifying potential cyber security threats, while vulnerability scanning is a crucial tool for identifying potential exploits and reducing the risk of a data breach. As an MSSP, IT for Business recommends vulnerability scanning as a key component of a comprehensive cyber security strategy.
