ECCU 503: Security Analysis and Vulnerability Assessment

To be able to complete the Puzzle, it is necessary to understand the extensive requirements to conduct a complete security assessment and test for existing vulnerabilities. According to Complete Code, the industrial average is 15 to 50 errors per 1000 line of delivered code. Considering that Windows 7 contains 40 million lines of code. This presents an amazing opportunity for any hacker. Conducting constant security analysis and vulnerability testing is the key to protecting network systems and is another piece in The Puzzle.
