Time to CARVER Up in the Keys!
December 6-8, 2022
CARVER Target Analysis and Vulnerability Assessment Training
Get Certified in the CIA's CARVER Methodology at a 5-star resort in Key Largo, Florida from December 6-8, 2022
Three Educational Days Learning the CIA's Target Analysis and Vulnerability Assessment Methodology
A Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA) is an understanding of the threats, weaknesses, and probability of attack, which could impact a facility, person, system or event.
As such, the CARVER Target Analysis and Vulnerability Assessment Methodology is a time-tested vulnerability assessment methodology that balances efficiency with reliability.
It is a unique analytical tool because it facilitates both a qualitative and a quantitative assessment of an asset’s vulnerabilities. Most assessment tools are limited to qualitative assessments. A quantitative assessment assists in highlighting vulnerabilities, prioritizing assets and remedial efforts.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Three Days of Intense CARVER Training (in a relaxed tropical environment)
As the premier global CARVER training course for the past two decades, the SMI team is proud to present our inaugural "CARVER in the Keys" program. Having trained close to 10,000 students in this target analysis and vulnerability assessment methodology, we have decided to change up the training location (we usually train in Washington DC or Tampa), the format of the course, as well as modernize the content. As a special bonus - for the first time ever - we are including your hotel room in the cost of tuition... and doing so in a 5-star resort is a nice touch, if we do say so ourselves. We are also offering students free access to the CARVER+ software platform. CARVER+ is the future of vulnerability assessments, as it allows you to assess, report, and monitor your assets in real-time from anywhere around the world.
