IT Audit helps organizations to make sure they comply with the security requirements as a part of compliance standards. It is done by analyzing the IT infrastructure to provide remediation suggestions to enhance the overall performance and security.
All findings and suggestions are documented and integrated into an IT Audit Report. An evaluation of the quality of the customer’s IT-infrastructure compared to industry standards, good and best practices is done. It will also contain suggestions for enhancements required to increase operational stability, performance, resilience, and user satisfaction. Detailed and descriptive guidelines and suggestions for risk reduction, risk elimination, or risk mitigation is also included.
Each identified risk is evaluated according to a special risk metric, called the “Risk Score”, which takes several dimensions of risk values into account. A Risk Score defines a given risk between 0 and 10 based on the risk criteria.
Information Security is the protection of information from a wide range of threats in order to ensure business continuity and minimize a range of business risks. Essentially it is the preservation of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information. This is particularly important with the increase in interconnected computing environments and ever-increasing threats.
We conduct security assessment of customer IT infrastructure during the IT Audit. Vulnerability Analysis is also done with the help of automated tools and few custom scripts. Email Spoofing Analysis is also done on the mail server to identify gaps to fix the same.
IT Audits – Areas covered
When performing the IT Audit of the defined infrastructure, these areas are covered:
Topology analysis of IT-infrastructure
Vulnerability Analysis of the network
Gap analysis of existing IT-infrastructure
Email Spoofing Analysis
Analysis of data backup and restore procedures
Analysis of disaster recovery planning
Analysis of data leakage and encryption – data at rest & data in transit
Wireless network policies
Evaluation of existing Software used and suggestions on mitigation of vulnerable/end-of-life versions
Evaluation of existing Hardware assets including switching devices, printers & laptops
Email systems & spam filter
Password Management & policies
IT Audit provides a more complete view of IT infrastructure security. Testing will be performed from inside the network to identify the gaps and scanning from within the network to identify the assets. Testing is conducted with the help of automated scanners and custom scripts.
Email spoofing protection will stop spammers from sending emails on the domain’s behalf. Spoofing can result in significant damage as normal users cannot differentiate between genuine email and spoofed email. In addition, Anti-spoofing protection will reduce the number of legitimate e-mail messages that are flagged as spam or bounced back by your recipients’ mail servers.
