Comprehensive Information Security Audit

The information security measures that companies employ don't always provide protection against actual threats and cyberattacks, given that the techniques used by attackers are constantly evolving and their technologies are continually improving. As per every information security standard, it is recommended to conduct regular audits, both from a technical and organizational perspective.

An information security audit enables you to:

  • Detect 'blind spots' not yet targeted by information security services,
  • Enhance the efficiency of the information security management system and existing protective measures,
  • Identify new risks to information security,
  • Minimize the risk of financial and reputational damage associated with information security incidents.
ICL Services experts will carry out an independent evaluation of your company's information security from multiple perspectives:

  • Examine the current information security management system,
  • Conduct an analysis of existing information security documentation and processes,
  • Assess the effectiveness of the information security measures implemented,
  • Will pinpoint key and priority sectors that require enhancement and growth in terms of their significance and efficiency,
  • Will suggest how to establish an information security system and budget planning.
An audit of information security encompasses the examination of the efficiency of the following sectors:

  • Inventory and supervision of hardware elements,
  • Inventory and supervision of software elements,
  • Data protection,
  • Security configurations of hardware and software elements,
  • Management of user accounts,

  • A compilation of suggestions for aligning the company's information systems, resources, and assets with information security requirements across various domains.
