Vulnerability Assessment & Analysis

Vulnerability analysis, also known as vulnerability assessment, is a process that defines, identifies, and classifies the security holes in a company's infrastructure. Vulnerability analysis can forecast the effectiveness of proposed countermeasures and evaluate their actual effectiveness after they are put into use.

Steps Performed during Vulnerability Analysis:

    • Developing a Strategy to Deal with the Most Serious Potential Problems First
    • Defining & Implementing Ways to Minimize the Consequences If an Attack Occurs
    • Identifying Potential Threats to Each Resource
    • Defining & Classifying the Company's Resources
    • Assigning Relative Levels of Importance to the Resources

Identifying Potential Threats

The next stage of vulnerability analysis (identifying potential threats) is performed by A.W. Griffith Transportation Consulting, LLC using ethical techniques to assess vulnerabilities. A.W. Griffith Transportation Consulting, LLC deliberately probes the company to discover its weaknesses. This process provides guidelines for the development of countermeasures to prevent a genuine attack.

Threat & Security Vulnerability Assessments for School Bus Companies

The nation's largest mass transportation fleet is overlooked in Congress' efforts to secure our nation's transportation system. Each weekday, about 470,000 school buses travel the nation's roads. About one third of these buses are privately owned.

This fleet is two-and-a-half times the size of all other forms of mass transportation, including transit, intercity buses, commercial airlines, and rail, combined. During the school year, they make more than 50 million passenger trips, carrying our country's most vulnerable passengers–our children. The exposure is far greater than public transportation's at 32 million trips daily, yet the school bus industry has received little attention and no funding from the federal government.

The Purpose of a Security & Emergency Preparedness Plan (SEPP)

The overall purpose for your company to have a SEPP in place is to optimize within the constraints of time, cost, and operational effectiveness. The level of protection afforded to our company's passengers, employees, volunteers, and contractors, and any other individuals who come into contact with your company, both during normal operations and under emergency conditions.
