Cyber Security Audit

Who is the Cyber Security Audit designed for?
Cyber Security Audits are particularly valuable to organisations that have yet to document their risks, vulnerabilities or threats exposure.
It is also useful to organisations that have grown organically and already implemented a suite of security controls but now find themselves overwhelmed by the threats they may face due to the sheer volume of communications they process on a daily basis. These communications can be anything from emails with videos, images, PDF or Office attachments to social media postings and hyperlinks using a variety of devices across multiple channels.
Why you need a Cyber Security Audit
New regulations such as the EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) call for extremely stiff penalties in case of a breach or hack resulting in lost personal data. One way to mitigate the consequences of a breach is to show that your organisation has followed all the government initiatives and taken the necessary steps to protect personal data to every extent possible.
A Cyber Security Audit sets you off on the right foot by providing the basic cyber security groundwork on which to build your IT stack.
