Take Advantage of Expert Knowledge to Minimize Security Threats
What Is a Vulnerability Assessment?
Our Vulnerability Assessment is a procedure that defines, identifies, and classifies specific weaknesses in your organization and infrastructure. Our Vulnerability Assessment can forecast the effectiveness of proposed countermeasures and once implemented, test their actual effectiveness. Once you have identified vulnerabilities and tested different solutions, you can feel empowered to manage emergency situations if and when they arise.
In summary, a Vulnerability Assessment with National VIPS can:
- Evaluate your risk
- Help prevent incidents
- Reduce liability

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I conduct my own Vulnerability Assessment?If you have training and experience in conducting vulnerability assessments, then you likely have a lot of the essential tools to assess your organization’s risk level and vulnerabilities. However, when dealing with an organization that you own or manage, there will always be blind spots. This is why it is better to bring in objective, highly-trained teams to assess your organization on your behalf and provide a thorough analysis.
Are there different types of Vulnerability Assessments?Yes, there are many different types of vulnerability assessments. Depending on the type of organization you manage, you may need more than one to ensure the security of your staff and data. For example, a cybersecurity assessment can help prevent data leaks or attacks from hackers, while a physical vulnerability assessment can prevent more direct attacks from violent intruders. Our assessment of your facility will focus specifically on the exposure, risk and mitigation measures that your organization has to a violent intruder or active shooter attack.
How does National VIPS perform Vulnerability Assessments?National VIPS will talk to designated members of your team and staff, asking pertinent questions related to organizational operations. Then, we conduct a comprehensive inspection of your facility from the perspective of exposure to an active shooter attack. Finally, we provide a verbal review of the assessment findings, as well as potential vulnerability mitigation measures.
