The modern threat landscape means that new security vulnerabilities are being discovered every day – often by the very people you need to keep out of your network. According to the latest government statistics, there was a 55% year-on-year rise in the value of fraud during 2016, costing British businesses £1.1bn.

Fortunately, help is at hand – IT security audits from Riverbank can prevent your business becoming a victim.

What does an IT security audit involve?

1. Building a security baseline

The first stage of an IT security audit is to assess your current provisions. Riverbank engineers will perform a detailed analysis of your network and software assets, and capture specific information as to how well each is protected.

Our team will audit your network perimeter security provisions, software patch status and software versions. They will then produce a report that provides a baseline against which all future improvements will be measured.

2. Building a security strategy

 Riverbank consultants will produce a series of recommendations for improving your level of protection. From strengthening your existing provisions, to suggesting new technologies and services that will enhance your defences, the strategy will help you understand the work that needs to be done.

The strategy report also outlines priorities, so you can allocate spend most effectively, plugging any gaps that need to be addressed immediately.
