IT Security audit service is a review of how robust your information technology systems are to attacks or human errors.
IT security audit is basically an overall assessment of the organization’s IT security practices both physical and non-physical (software) that can potentially lead to its compromise. This includes practices like vulnerability scans to detect loopholes in the IT systems or conducting penetration tests to obtain unauthorized access to the systems etc. Finally, the reports created after completing all the necessary procedures are then submitted to the organization for further analysis.
Why is IT Security Audit so important for your business?
Securing IT infrastructure is critical for any organization. Organizations are slowly understanding the fact that merely installing a firewall or intrusion-detection system will not secure their systems & critical data assets from external attack. An IT security audit provides invaluable information about an organization security controls. It enables companies to stay ahead of insider threats, security breaches, & various other cyberattacks that may put the company’s security, reputation, and finances at stake.
