What is a Cyber Security Audit and how can it help your business?

A Cybersecurity audit is designed to be a complete review and analysis of your business’s IT systems.

We can pinpoint weaknesses and gaps in your infrastructure and test to see if the cybersecurity safeguards in place are up to scratch.

Our audit covers all the basic security Cyber Essentials Badgecontrols of the UK government designed and backed Cyber Essentials standard, but with added controls that we have learned through years of protecting businesses like yours.

Who is it designed for?

Cybersecurity audits are a valuable tool for organisations that have not yet documented their internal and external risks and vulnerabilities. It is also useful for expanding businesses that are implementing various software and security controls.

Regulations such as the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) can impose hefty penalties in the event of a breach that results in exploited data. The security audit will help mitigate the consequences of a breach and demonstrate your organisation has taken the necessary steps to protect the client’s data.
