  6. Are high value or critical assets located as far into the interior of the building as possible and separated from the public areas of the building?

  7. What are the control measures applied to mitigate the risk of potential product fraud activity identified within the vulnerability assessment?

  8. Are there data gaps and further research needed pertaining to maintaining your systems or understanding the risks to your systems?

  9. Are you using techniques as scenario planning, business impact analysis, vulnerability assessments to assess your risk exposure?

  10. When was the last time your organization conducted a risk analysis activity that included a technical vulnerability assessment?

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Vulnerability Assessment investments work better.

This Vulnerability Assessment All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
