Threat and Vulnerability Assessment (TVA)

Threat and Vulnerability Assessment provide for performance-based assessment methodology to demonstrate that a mission owning organization can be compliant but not survivable. By looking differently at the assessment process, a performance-based assessment can go a long way in augmenting a compliance-based assessment. Our assessments help organizations in identifying those Critical Nodes (CN) associated with the industry, understanding the interdependencies between critical systems, and how they support or impact mission/capability survivability. TVA assessments can include a variety of the following and more:

  • Backup or alternate capability e.g., backup generator, servers
  • Physical Security Systems and Electronic Security Systems and structural vulnerabilities
  • External presence (social media presence, signage, route publications etc.) and open-source data collection and analysis
  • WMD Threats and consideration
  • Fire protection systems appropriate for the asset being protected (automatic, manual, wet pipe, dry pipe, chemical)
  • Electrical grounding, lightning protection
  • Utility Systems and SCADA Systems
