A security audit is a systematic evaluation of the security of a company’s information technology systems by measuring how well it conforms to an established set of criteria. A thorough audit assesses the protection of the system’s physical configuration and environment, software, information handling processes and user practices.
These audits are one of three main types of security diagnostics, along with vulnerability assessments and penetration testing (carried out as an additional option through a third party). Security audits measure an information system’s performance against a list of criteria. A vulnerability assessment is a comprehensive study of an information system, seeking potential security weaknesses and ensuring that necessary security patches have been applied.
We will construct a security audit plan that is repeatable and update-able, we will then work through this plan on site assessing your systems and issue you with a remediation plan from our findings on site.
Once the remediations have been completed we will then issue you with an audit routine, based on your trade, data sensitivity and your business’s risks. Many businesses will do a security audit at least once a year. But they can also be done monthly or quarterly depending on your trade. Different departments may have different audit schedules, depending on the systems, applications and data they use. Routine audits, whether done annually or monthly, can help identify anomalies or patterns in a system.
