Vulnerability Identification & Testing
Vulnerability Identification & Testing (VIT) is one of GIBC Digital's sub-competencies within Cybersecurity, where we test, identify, categorize, and remediate exploitable vulnerabilities on any network before a compromise occurs.
VIT aligns people, processes, and technology within an organization to a comprehensive cybersecurity framework to reduce and eliminate cybersecurity risk.
A simulated, cyber attack against technical systems to check for and exploit vulnerabilities. We can perform the following types of penetration testing:
◆ Black Box ◆ Gray Box ◆ White Box
A simulated, cyber attack to determine how a client would fare in the face of a real attack. Unlike a penetration test, the company's defenders are actively trying to stop the exploit attempts of GIBC’s red team. This activity gives clients a playbook to improve their defenses, while simultaneously evaluating their people, processes and technology
The systematic, comprehensive identification, quantification, and prioritization of exploitable vulnerabilities using GIBC Digital’s proprietary framework, which includes scanning applications, databases, workstations, wired and wireless assets, using manual and automated tools
