Conducting Facility Vulnerability Assessments

by Michael Johns, Project Manager | August 21, 2006

During the Target Analysis & Vulnerability Assessment workshop you will conduct an actual vulnerability assessment at a government or private sector facility with active cooperation from local law enforcement. This workshop, taught by leading counter-terrorism and security experts, provides you with a methodical and practical approach identifying assets most attractive to attack by an adversary based upon the following key factors:

Criticality - Identify critical assets, single points of failure or "choke points"

Accessibility - Determine ease of access to critical assets

Recoverability - Compare time it would take to replace or restore a critical asset against maximum acceptable period of disruption

Vulnerability - Evaluate security system effectiveness against adversary capabilities

Effect - Consider scope and magnitude of adverse consequences that would result from malicious actions and responses to them

Recognizability - Evaluate likelihood that potential adversaries would recognize that an asset was critical

What You Will Learn
How to employ the principles of the CARVER methodology to conduct your own field exercises for your - or your client's - facility or an asset of that facility
How to use the results of the assessment to formulate and prioritize risk reduction recommendations
How to prepare a Vulnerability Assessment report
