What is a Vulnerability Audit?

A vulnerability audit is a multi-disciplinary risk assessment to identify current and potential areas of operational weakness and system flaws that could lead to, or exacerbate, crises.

Our vulnerability audit process will help you:

  • Identify areas of improvement for planning and training efforts.
  • Detect and prevent crises before they can cause significant damage.
  • Dramatically enhance response time.
  • Correct operational weaknesses.
  • Reduce the end cost of crisis situations.
