Many industries we serve are under some sort of compliance requirements – HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, etc. and several of these require some sort of vulnerability scans or penetration testing:
HIPAA Section 164.308(a)(1)(ii)(A) states:
RISK ANALYSIS (Required). Conduct an accurate and thorough assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information held by the [organization].
PCI DSS Requirement 11.3:
The scope of a penetration test, as defined in PCI DSS Requirement 11.3, must include the entire CDE perimeter and any critical systems that may impact the security of the CDE as well as the environment in scope for PCI DSS. This includes both the external perimeter (public-facing attack surfaces) and the internal perimeter of the CDE (LAN-LAN attack surfaces).
GDPR Article 32 states:
A process for regularly testing, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures for ensuring the security of the processing
