IT security audit: evaluate your cybersecurity policies and procedures

The IT security audit allows you to analyze and obtain a vision of the overall cybersecurity level of your organization.
The work carried out as part of a cybersecurity audit is numerous, detailed and affects all of the targeted systems.

An IT security audit allows you to be proactive and anticipate possible threats. You should not wait for a cyberattack to set up an audit. As cyberattacks evolve rapidly and are increasingly complex, it is necessary to audit regularly and adapt your IT infrastructure with constant updates.

Compared to carrying out an IT security audit by one of your internal colleagues, carrying out an external audit offers: a fresh look at your cybersecurity procedures, in-depth expertise and extensive experience through the completion of numerous other audits. By entrusting your security audit to a specialized company, you will obtain a quality report including concrete recommendations.

The security audit allows you to draw a transparent portrait of your current situation by confirming the effectiveness of your protection mechanisms as well as the robustness of your IT infrastructure in the face of cyber threats.

Most businesses wait until they suspect a cyberattack or hack to conduct an IT security audit.

We advise you to carry out an IT security audit at more opportune times.

  • Be proactive by conducting an IT security audit to know in advance about threats that could impact your organization
  • The launch of an application, an important update or even a change in your computer system can be a good time
  • A major change in compliance regulations can also be a great opportunity
