IT Security Assessment and Auditing Services
Improve your IT security posture
IT security is an issue for many businesses, and hackers are only getting more intelligent. IT audits and IT security assessments look at the technology, controls, policies and practices your organisation has to determine whether relevant standards and regulations are being complied with properly. We follow these four steps to assess and audit your company’s security infrastructure:
1. Define the threats
2. Evaluate security performance
3. Assess the likelihood of threats
4. Design a defence strategy

An IT security assessment is a preemptive internal check to prepare for an IT security audit.

During an IT security assessment, our experienced and certified IT team will typically examine your organisations:

IT Security Auditing Services
An IT security audit goes deeper than a security assessment to determine whether relevant standards and regulations are being complied with properly. We will check your compliance in the following areas:
- Access right management
- Access control measures
- Unauthorised users
- Policies and procedures
The IT audit tests these areas to ensure they will be functional and effective in a security event. We then determine whether they meet the required standards of your organisation.
How often does my business need an IT security assessment?
The cyber threat landscape is constantly changing, and new vulnerabilities are discovered every month. We recommend regular IT security Assessment be conducted at least every quarter. However, this is dependant on several factors:
- The size of your organisation.
- The types of Apps that are deployed.
- The compliance requirements of your customers.
