Vulnerability Assessments

Cyber Vulnerability is a weakness residing in cyber assets that allows attackers to exploit the systems. The growing dependence of critical infrastructure and industrial automation on cyber-based control systems has resulted in a growing and previously unforeseen cyber security threat to supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and distributed control systems (DCS). It is critical that engineers and managers understand these threats and protect their systems by mitigating the cyber vulnerabilities.

AESI provides periodic, proactive Cyber Vulnerability Assessments (CVA) and penetration testing to help our clients identify cyber vulnerabilities and mitigate them. AESI offers CVAs in alignment with industry cyber security standards such as NERC CIP, ISO 27001, NIST and security best practices—leveraging a proven, structured process and methodology.

AESI’s security experts analyze the client’s needs and the requirements; we review documentation and data to determine the current security status of the client’s environment and the best approach for a CVA.

Our team conducts the vulnerability assessments on-site, following a pre-defined scanning policy and using diagnostic tools for the network and cyber systems. We then analyze the results, measuring against industry standards, and develop a report that identifies the vulnerabilities and actionable tasks to fortify the systems.

AESI and our experts provide industry leading Cyber Vulnerability Assessments for numerous clients across North America—with proven experience and skills that are highly recognized in the industry.
