The importance of Website Security Assessments

Given today’s hectic and dynamic IT environment the chance that administrators would voluntarily undertake periodic security assessments is rare. Usually regular assessments are driven by regulations like HIPAA, FISMA, Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA and PCI or a very exceptionally organized and disciplined CISO.  Regulations aside there are many reasons why organizations should voluntarily undertake periodic assessments.

Much like physical security, the only way to find out how well your organization can hold up to a cyber-threat are periodic assessments. Periodic assessments are a great time to review process, and stay aware of the latest threats ensuring your organization is ready. Periodic assessments are dry runs, or fire drills, keeping the team vigilant and aware of how to deal with threats.


The old adage “if it ain’t broke…” definitely doesn’t work in this case, much to the contrary if its old and not updated, it is probably broke!


A Website Security Assessment (Automated & Manual Testing) is designed to meet best-practices for website security. A vulnerability assessment of your website and its functions helps determine if a hacker can break in and compromise your website and brand. A proactive approach lets you find vulnerabilities before hackers do and will let you fix problems quickly with detailed analysis and prioritization.


By having security professional crawl your website looking for problems and performing penetration testing activities, you identify old and vulnerable code, running services and application weaknesses. You will know immediately, whether your website is secure against web attacks.


Your site can be scanned once a year, once a quarter or monthly.
