VULNERABILITIES ASSESSMENT 2 Vulnerabilities Assessment All homes and places of business are subject to vulnerabilities. Some are more vulnerable than others. The vulnerability depends on different factors. These factors are; environmental, utilities and service, Criminal behavior, equipment failure, and information security. Each of these factors has sub factors. Earthquake, fire, tornado, flood, landslide, and hurricane are the sub factors for the environmental factor. Electrical, gas, water, communications, and transportation are the sub factors for utilities and service. Terrorism, sabotage, theft, arson, riots, and trespassing are the sub factors of criminal behavior. IT equipment, and non- IT equipment are the sub factors of equipment failure. Cyber crime, loss of records, and information breaches are the sub factors of information security. This report will separate all of the Vulnerabilities into three priority levels high, medium, and low priority. Suggestions will also be made to help secure the clinic, and help make it less vulnerable. Below is a chart estimating the Vulnerability level, and probability severity for the clinics location. High Priority = Vulnerability Level of 15-25 Medium Priority = Vulnerability Level of 6-12 Low Priority = Vulnerability Level of 1-5 VULNERABILITY PROBA BILITY SEVE RITY Vulnerability Level Probability X Severity Environmental Earthquake 5 5 25 Fire 5 5 25 Tornado 1 1 1 Flood 1 1 1 Landslide 3 3 9 Hurricane 2 2 4 Utilities & Electrical 2 2 4
