Let us talk about the status of cyber security in your company.

An audit gives you an overview of the current risks and provides you with an independent basis for making decisions for the next security measures.

Almost every day, the media report on new attacks and successful cyber criminals who steal data from companies and private individuals and cause great harm. What does this mean for your company? How well are you protected against these threats? These are not easy questions! And the answers given by internal specialists are sometimes not easy to understand or provide too little information.

External risk analysis as a first step

The first step toward protecting your own IT is to determine the current situation: If you are aware of risks and threats, you can use budgets for cyber security measures wisely. A security audit examines where IT and data are at risk. Once these have been identified, experts search painstakingly for vulnerabilities.

Five questions for preparation

Ask yourself these five questions before taking any further steps:

  • Does your IT environment correspond to the current best practice in your industry?
  • What kind of cyber attacks are you prepared for?
  • Do you know your digital key assets?
  • Are they adequately protected?
  • With regard to information security, where is your greatest need for action?

Tested: technology, applications, organization

A security audit examines everything that makes up your IT: The technical infrastructure, your network and also applications. The experts also check the daily operation for security gaps: How is the IT organized? Who has what rights? Are the tasks clearly separated or are there cluster risks – for example by concentrating different functions and tasks on a single person?

Report and discussion for clear understanding

The information collected is analyzed by the auditor and documented in the report as a risk profile. The audit report is rounded off with suitable measures to reduce risk and improve security. In a workshop, the report is discussed in detail and it is ensured that the risks and measures have been correctly understood and that the client and their employees can continue to work autonomously with the information.
