Executive Summary

Introduction

In many ways, the introduction restates what has been briefly covered in the Executive Summary. Therefore, the first one or two paragraphs should discuss the organization, its locations, mission, employees, and the items that were assessed.

Again, why was the assessment performed? The reasons might be due diligence; compliance with state, provincial, or federal laws; a breach in security; or other factorsthe level of urgency will vary. So you will want to be sure to keep this in mind when detailing the project. Include what types of information the vulnerability assessment team gathered and how they gathered it.
