What Is A Network & Security Assessment?
The purpose of a network security assessment is to keep your network, devices, and sensitive data secured from unauthorized access by discovering potential attack vectors from inside and outside of your internal network.
Additionally, you may have a regulatory responsibility to do them, depending on your industry. For example, credit card processors need to comply with PCI DSS and health care organizations need to comply with HIPAA.
Network assessment is the collective measures done to analyze, study and gather data about a network with the purpose of ascertaining its health in accordance with the network/organization requirements. Network assessment works through a systematic process where a computer network is analyzed for:
- Implementation of control
- Each node of a network (Workstation & Servers)
- Network control
- Network monitoring processes
- Assess the organization’s needs
- Train the employees accordingly
The data is gathered, vulnerabilities and threats are identified, and a formal assessment report is sent to and discussed with the network administrators, CEO or business owner.
