The CYBRScore Vulnerability Analysis/Protection Lab is intended for Intermediate level students and learners. CYBRScore's Vulnerability Analysis/Protection Lab teaches students to conduct Vulnerability Scans using Automated Tools & Techniques which includes using OpenVAS and NMap.

The CYBRScore Vulnerability Analysis/Protection Lab is aimed towards the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work profile. Upon successful completion of CYBRScore's Vulnerability Analysis/Protection lab, the student will be able to identify systemic security issues based on the analysis of vulnerability and configuration data. Students also learn to implement the basic CIAAN (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Authentication, Non-Repudiation) IT Security and Privacy Principles as per the organizational requirement. CYBRScore's Vulnerability Analysis/Protection lab takes 1-4 hours to complete for most students.

In CYBRScore's Vulnerability Analysis/Protection Lab, students will learn about Vulnerability Assessments, which involve conducting vulnerability scans and identifying as well as remediating vulnerabilities in security systems. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to identify security threats and issues based on the vulnerability and configuration data analysis.

In CYBRScore's Vulnerability Analysis/Protection Lab, students also have the opportunity to discover Vulnerabilities according to their risk and generate a Vulnerability Report with priorities and justifications as a part of developing insights about the context of an organization's threat niche. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to assess an organization's preparedness to prioritize and categorize risks that are Static as well as Dynamic.

In CYBRScore's Vulnerability Analysis/Protection Lab, students implement the tools OpenVAS and NMap to identify vulnerabilities in the organization's network architecture and perform Risk Assessments. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to implement Network Scanning and Analysis Tools to Identify, Mitigate, Analyze and Remediate the network loopholes, misconfigurations, and vulnerabilities in the organization's network architecture.

In CYBRScore's Vulnerability Analysis/Protection Lab, the basic IT/Cyber Security Privacy Principles i.e. CIAAN (Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Authentication, Non-Repudiation) are reinforced into the student's knowledge database that benefits them in assessing the robustness of security systems and designs. This skill is a part of the Vulnerability Assessment Analyst work role and is built upon the ability to apply the CIAAN basic IT/Cyber Security Privacy Principles to an organization's IT Infrastructure.

Completion of CYBRScore's Vulnerability Analysis/Protection lab means that the student has demonstrated the ability to use the manual techniques to Identify, Mitigate, Scan, Analyze and Remediate Network Vulnerabilities pertaining to an organization's IT Infrastructure and assess the Threat Environment.
