VAPT

The Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) Service offered by the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) is a free cybersecurity service aimed at identifying and addressing vulnerabilities in information systems and networks.

The primary purpose of NITDA VAPT Service is to enhance the cybersecurity posture of government institutions by identifying weaknesses and vulnerabilities in their IT infrastructure, applications, and networks. It helps organizations proactively detect and mitigate security risks to avoid being exploited by malicious actors.

NITDA VAPT Service involves two main activities: Vulnerability Assessment (VA) and Penetration Testing (PT). Vulnerability Assessment identifies and assesses potential vulnerabilities in an organization’s IT systems, while Penetration Testing simulates real-world cyber-attacks to evaluate the effectiveness of security controls and defenses.

NITDA employs a team of skilled cybersecurity professionals who use automated tools, manual techniques, and ethical hacking methodologies to conduct Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing. They identify security weaknesses, prioritize risks, and provide recommendations for remediation.
