What is Involved in an internal IT Security Audit?

Whether performing a general IT Control Review, Service Provider Assurance or a Threats and Vulnerability
Assessment, we will:

  • Identify potential threats from malicious insider or outsider hacker that could cause a reportable data breach resulting in fines, State action, and/or reputational damage and potential loss of proprietary data and competitive advantage.
  • Assess area of vulnerability related to software and hardware applications, providing you with the details needed to make appropriate decisions to mitigate risk and decrease exposure to threats.
  • Validate that protected data meets the requirement of Michigan law (Section 445.72) as it relates to encryption of residents’ personal information.
  • Validate that hardware and software is appropriately patched and supported by the vendor, should a business critical process depend on one of these systems.
  • Determine if network and Wi-Fi access points are appropriately restricted.
  • Work with your current IT provider, who typically focuses on managing systems, to maximize and optimize your IT functions.
