Vulnerability Assessment v. Penetration Testing: What’s the Difference?
Being an accountable organization means protecting personally identifiable information, health records, financial information, social security numbers, and a myriad of other data assets. In order to effectively protect these assets, you need to align the gaps in your security program with security controls that are the best fit for your organization.

A regular, effective, standard-based vulnerability management program - including penetration testing - is one of the most effective and meaningful controls an organization can implement in order to identify their unique, and potentially unforeseen, avenues of compromise. However, many organizations use these terms interchangeably, and this can cause a gap within your cybersecurity program that prevents you from effectively protecting your business.

Join Senior Security Specialist, Gary Braglia, as he explains the differences between vulnerability assessments and penetration testing, and why knowing the difference is crucial for your organization.

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

- How the function of a vulnerability assessment differs from that of a penetration test, and the consequences of not understanding those differences
- The best time - and reasons - to perform each of these services
- How to determine if a penetration test, a vulnerability assessment, and/or another cybersecurity initiative is right for your organization (and your budget)
