Security Assessment

Security Assessment is the holistic, risk-based analysis of a computer system, network and application’s technical and non-technical components to seek out vulnerabilities that constitute risk to Queen’s infrastructure and data.

The assessment process involves an exploration of all of the security features of the system in question, including its environmental and operational needs, followed by an attempt to explore possibilities for security breeches, and compromising of the system.

Getting Started
