SHELTON, Conn. -- SSC, Inc. (SSC),, the leader in security for the tri-state region, announced a comprehensive Vulnerability and Risk Assessment service to protect companies and institutions from the multi-billion dollar cost of security breaches and ensure compliance with new governmental regulations.

With security breaches at an all time yearly high of $100 billion, the exposure of corporations and institutions to security threats has never been greater, according to Michael Burbage, President of SSC.

SSC's Vulnerability and Risk Assessment service takes a new approach by examining security issues from an adversary's perspective and by analyzing all vulnerabilities; from the physical defense of a facility to computer networks to employee sabotage.

"The problem with most vulnerability and risk assessments is that they are too narrowly-focused, leaving companies open to a host of security problems," said Amit Gavish, SSC Senior Corporate Advisor for International Security Issues and a former Deputy Director of Security at the Office of the President of Israel. "A vulnerability and risk assessment service may be excellent at preventing cybercrime but fail to protect against physical threats. It might be focused on counterterrorism, but neglect internal threats. It's essential to have all the pieces in place for total protection."
