Network Gap Analysis - Best Practices

What would a good "Gap Analysis" look like? I had a recruiter call and they needed someone with a bunch of networking experience.
But the 10 month long gig was to travel to their various offices and data centers around the world and do a "gap analysis". It sounds
intriguing enough. I just wondered if anyone had an example document or general thoughts as to what the output of such a
project/assignment would look like in the end. ??

Gap Analysis is slang for "Vulnerability Analysis".

You are looking for holes or weaknesses in the network, examining if they are following best practices (example, making sure all devices are up to date, patched, etc.)

You will need certain tools to not only assess what is happening on the inside, but also to see if you can get in from the outside.

That's why most companies hire from outside the company. Usually the inside are too busy either managing, fixing things or putting out fires.
