Vulnerability Scanning is the art of using one computer to look for weaknesses in the security of another computer - so that you can find and fix the weaknesses in your systems before someone else finds that there is a security weakness and decides to break in. It’s a bit like a shop keeper making sure all the doors and windows are closed and locked, the money is in the safe and the alarm is set, before closing up for the evening
