Vulnerability Assessment

A risk management process used to identify, quantify and rank possible vulnerabilities to threats in a given system. It is not isolated to a single field and is applied to systems across different industries. The key component of a vulnerability assessment is the proper definition for impact loss rating and the system’s vulnerability to that specific threat. Impact loss differs per system.
