Information Security Audit

Information Security Audit with Security Experts

Information security audit as a service aims examination of all assets related to information security on conformance to the selected criteria. The scope of an audit depends on the objective. A regular audit assesses different processes, services, products, information processing procedures, user practices, security of system configuration and environment, etc. The main purpose is verification whether security management system satisfies business objectives and how the existing controls adhere to the risk assessment, best practice standards and/or the other applicable regulatory compliance requirements.

Security audits, vulnerability assessments, and penetration testing are the main types of security checks. Each of these three types differs from the others by means of focus/purpose and approach. Security audit evaluates how well information system conforms to a set of established criteria. A vulnerability assessment focuses on analysis of an entire information system with the aim of discovering potential security weaknesses/leaks. Penetration testing focuses on the ability of the tested system to withstand against the hackers attacks.
