Conduct a Security and Compliance Audit, You Won’t Regret It

If you are an avid reader of our blog, we are constantly saying how there are always a growing number of threats. This is true. Two-in-every-three business owners consider that their cybersecurity risks are increasing each year. The other third must not focus on them, and that is a problem. In fact, many business owners don’t give the proper respect to cyberthreats and many of those businesses pay the price. This is why every business should consider a security and compliance audit a mandatory part of their yearly IT assessment. 

Explaining the Security and Compliance Audit

Since there is a constant stream of threats coming at your business from the Internet, it stands to reason that you need to come up with a strategy to reduce or completely eliminate those threats’ path to your business’ IT infrastructure. Traditionally, that means installing security software solutions such as firewalls and antivirus, training your staff on how to navigate potential scams, and doing your best to monitor the threats as they come in. This seems comprehensive, right? Unfortunately, these efforts are unlikely to prevent a breach of your network or a corruption of your IT infrastructure.

The IT infrastructure that continues to grow.

If you consider that every year more and more is added to your IT infrastructure, it’s not a stretch of the imagination to not only gain more to support, but also additional points of potential exploitation. New systems can create new vulnerabilities in your network, and more to support can add even more holes in your existing system. These are the avenues hackers use to access your network and steal your data. 

Additionally, the more complicated your IT infrastructure gets, the more difficult it will be to stay in compliance with any regulations your business operates under. As issues with data privacy start to be taken seriously by lawmakers, expect more regulations; and additional focus on compliance. 

A security and compliance audit is basically the full assessment of your cybersecurity situation. It goes far beyond your average vulnerability scan as it takes into account how your technology is used and provides you with specific criteria that you need to take into account. This profile will go above and beyond your cursory network and infrastructure scan. 415 IT has the certified technicians on staff to comprehensively conduct such an assessment. We can provide you with information on where your business is weakest and what you can do to bump up your network security to stay in compliance and keep your network resources safe. 

Go Even Further

Our security and compliance audit can tell you what you need to know, but once you have taken the steps to patch the potential vulnerabilities in your network and infrastructure, you will need to keep it up. We can conduct penetration testing to ensure that the steps you take work to fix the vulnerabilities in your network. This can function as assurance that your business isn’t caught up in two terrible situations: a data breach or fallout from non-compliance. 

If you would like to talk to one of our IT professionals about getting a security and compliance audit, or if you would like to talk about how our managed IT services can work to thwart all types of negative situations, give us a call at (415) 295-4898 today.
