    Subject: Vulnerability Assessment Checklists?

    Hello,

    I've finished my Security+, and am almost through my Security Certified
    Network Professional training.

    I'm looking for some basic tips and resources (checklists or templates?) to
    do some vulnerability assessments because I just went to donate my
    services at a nonprofit job fair and got plenty of responses.

    Since I've never evaluated the security posture of a company before I could
    use some resources on how to best get started. They run the gamut from P2P
    to WANs. Of course, I want to give them some value while gaining valuable
    experience for my resume.

    Thanks in advance,

    Kim Clark
