How Often Should You Perform Vulnerability Assessments?

**1. Regular Cadence:

  • SafeNet recommends regular vulnerability assessments to ensure ongoing visibility into your security posture. This might involve quarterly, semi-annual, or annual assessments, depending on factors such as the organization’s size, industry regulations, and the evolving threat landscape.

**2. Trigger Events:

  • Beyond regular schedules, SafeNet advises organizations to conduct vulnerability assessments triggered by significant events. These events may include major system changes, network expansions, or the adoption of new technologies. These assessments act as proactive measures during critical periods of change.

**3. Post-Incident Assessments:

  • After experiencing a security incident, SafeNet recommends conducting vulnerability assessments to identify any weaknesses that might have contributed to the incident. This post-incident assessment helps in fortifying defenses and preventing future occurrences.

Where Should Vulnerability Assessments Be Conducted?

**1. Internal Networks:

  • SafeNet emphasizes the importance of assessing vulnerabilities within internal networks. This involves scrutinizing systems, applications, and databases within the organizational perimeter to identify and address potential risks.
