In this video, learn about a variety of security assessment techniques, including baseline reporting, code review, architecture reviews, and attack surface reviews.
- [Instructor] When you're ready to begin…a security assessment program,…where should you start?…Let's take a look at four common ways…to conduct a security assessment:…baseline reporting, an attack surface review,…code reviews, and architecture reviews.…Baseline reporting is a great way to get started.…Baseline reports provide you with an initial view…of a system's security status.…They are often performed against…the organization's security configuration standard,…and are best presented as a gap analysis…that shows the differences between…the system's current configuration…and the security baseline.…
Administrators may then work to reconcile those differences…and make security adjustments until the system…matches the desired baseline state.…There are tools to assist with this process.…For Microsoft systems,…the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer, or MBSA,…produces gap analysis reports.…Organizations adopting the Center for Internet Security…configuration baselines may use the Center's…configuration assessment tool, a Java-based utility…
