Subject: Conducting vulnerability assessment for the first time

I am tasked to perform network vulnerability assessments for a provider
customer

I am searching for ...

1.      What are the tools out there to perform vulnerability
assessments (port scanner, network mapper, etc.)
2.      What is the difference between vulnerability assessment and
penetration testing
3.      Are there best practices that can be utilized to perform the
assessments and to report its findings

Any help will be appreciated.

Bill.
