Our Audit & Assessment Process

Our process is designed to provide comprehensive, customized cybersecurity solutions. We’ve streamlined it into three key steps to ensure an efficient and effective service.

The first step of our process is an in-depth consultation. We meet with your team to understand the unique aspects of your business, your current security posture, and your specific cybersecurity concerns. We’ll discuss your operational needs, regulatory requirements, and any past cybersecurity incidents to tailor our audit and assessment to your organization.
With a thorough understanding of your business, we begin the execution phase. Our team of experts will conduct a detailed cybersecurity audit and assessment, exploring all areas of your IT environment. We identify vulnerabilities, assess potential threats, and evaluate your current security measures. This comprehensive process allows us to provide a full picture of your cybersecurity health.
Once the audit and assessment are complete, we deliver a detailed report of our findings. This report will highlight any vulnerabilities or weaknesses we’ve found, as well as recommendations for improving your cybersecurity posture. We’ll also arrange a follow-up meeting to walk you through our findings, answer any questions you may have, and discuss the next steps for implementing our recommendations.


What is a cybersecurity audit?

A cybersecurity audit is a systematic evaluation of an organization’s information systems. It assesses how well your business is protected against threats, the strength of your security policies, user access controls, and the overall security architecture. Audits aim to identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited and to suggest ways to improve.

How often should we conduct cybersecurity audits?

The frequency of cybersecurity audits can depend on several factors such as your business size, the nature of your data, the volume of changes in your environment, and the regulatory landscape of your industry. However, a best practice is to conduct a comprehensive cybersecurity audit at least once a year.

What does a cybersecurity assessment involve?

A cybersecurity assessment is an in-depth analysis of your organization’s cybersecurity health. It involves examining your network and security infrastructure, policies and procedures, user access controls, and more. It identifies vulnerabilities and areas for improvement, providing recommendations to bolster your defenses.

How long does a cybersecurity audit or assessment take?

The length of a cybersecurity audit or assessment can vary widely depending on the size of your organization, the scope of the audit, and the complexity of your systems. On average, you can expect the process to take several weeks.

What should we do to prepare for a cybersecurity audit?

To prepare for a cybersecurity audit, ensure that all of your security and policy documentation is up to date and easily accessible. This may include your security policies, incident response plans, network diagrams, and a list of all hardware and software in use.

What will we receive at the end of the audit?

At the end of the audit, you will receive a detailed report. This will include an overview of the audit findings, a breakdown of any vulnerabilities discovered, and recommendations for improving your organization’s cybersecurity.

Are the audit findings confidential?

Yes, we maintain the strictest confidentiality in all our processes. The results of your cybersecurity audit will be shared only with authorized personnel within your organization.

Does a cybersecurity audit guarantee we will not experience a security breach?

While a cybersecurity audit significantly reduces the risk of a security breach by identifying vulnerabilities and suggesting improvements, it does not provide a 100% guarantee against all potential cyber threats. Cybersecurity requires an ongoing commitment to stay ahead of new threats.
