Course description

The first part of this course will cover how to effectively capture the output of the vulnerability assessment in a comprehensive report and how to build that report so it present the most value. The second part of this course will dive into the topic of assessment maintenance. Vulnerability assessment is not a static thing: vulnerabilities evolve and new exploits are being developed daily, so to stay current, the assessment needs to be maintained. This course will focus on the two main aspects of the maintenance — risk score maintenance and vulnerability list maintenance.
