Security of IT systems

Systems security, also known as cyber security or IT security, is a set of best practices, techniques, and processes that ensure systems are resilient to leakage of data in the process of handling the given data.
The foundations for ensuring the cyber-security of a system and server infrastructure are designing it according to the latest security requirements, using the most up-to-date software, and end-user compliance with security rules.

What is a security audit?

A security audit is a service that examines and evaluates the procedures, policies and safeguards in place at your business or organization.
The course of an infrastructure and systems security audit includes the following steps:
  • taking stock of network and system resources, i.e. checking the completeness of software and hardware necessary to guarantee the foundations of data security;
  • checking the level of protection of the processed and stored data;
  • assessment of reliability of the tested structures.

The essence of conducting a security audit is primarily to identify hardware or system deficiencies and to detect potential threats arising from these deficiencies, and consequently to comprehensively secure IT systems against incidents and to develop procedures to be used in the event of their occurrence.

Benefits of conducting a security audit

The natural benefit of conducting a comprehensive infrastructure and information security audit is to increase the security level of your company’s critical information, including your customers’ data, contractors’ data or business secrets. A secondary, but equivalent benefit of a security audit is cost optimization in terms of systems, equipment and functioning of the entire organization.
  1. By decreasing the risk of security incidents such as data leakage and hardware failure, the need to cover the cost of damages caused by them also decreases.
  2. Taking stock of hardware and systems inventory gets rid of the hardware and software that is unnecessary or even harmful, and consequently decreases the cost of their operation and required licenses.
  3. Ensuring compliance with applicable legal and industry standards can save you at least tens of thousands of euros, because that is the amount of the fine for even the smallest data leak!

Our capabilities

Identifying needs and resources

At the beginning of our cooperation, we need to get acquainted with the hardware and system resources in your company – this is the basis for estimating the plan and scope of a security audit. At this stage we will get acquainted with all documentation.

Audit

Based on the results of the discernment and resource analysis, we will create an audit plan. It will consist of will include, among others:
  • audit on the completeness of documentation, including Privacy and Security Policies, regulations and procedures;
  • audit on the correctness of the architecture assumptions;
  • audit on the configuration of resources, including web servers, databases or firewalls.
As an additional service, we can extend the audit with so called penetration tests, i.e. security tests based on controlled attacks against audited resources. The tests aim to deepen the information we have by providing a practical assessment of the security level of systems, applications or services, determining their resistance and identifying points of vulnerability to security breaches.

Report and recommendations

The result of the security audit will be thoroughly analyzed on the basis of which we will develop for you:
  • a report on the overall security status of your company,
  • risk analysis and post-audit recommendations.
