System Security Assessments

Category: Security

​System Security Assessment Services provides customers with information regarding security threats and vulnerabilities that may exist in their environment

All information provided, discovered or reported by either party remains the property of the customer and is considered confidential and protected. Terms of the engagement do not include assumption of liability by DoIT. No warranties expressed or implied apply to such security assessments. New vulnerabilities and exploits are discovered on an on-going basis. Assessments are a "snap-shot" of the environment and limited to the vulnerabilities tested and identified. Security assessments are conducted as preventative due diligence and best practice. A list of hardware and software to be tested, along with an explanation of the testing, its scope and limitations, will be provided to establish and verify what will be included in the final report. An agreed-upon scope of work statement will be provided. Modifications to the initial agreement will follow standard change management practices. A final confidential report outlining findings, level of risk and suggested follow-up actions will be provided to the customer.
