Cyber Security Audit
In general, a cyber security audit is a methodical and unbiased review of a company's cyber security posture and procedures. In a security audit, it is determined whether or not the required security controls, policies, and processes have been implemented and are operating correctly and efficiently.
You have implemented a number of policies to protect your company's information technology assets. The purpose of a cyber security audit is to provide you with a "checklist" that you can use to confirm that your controls are operating properly. In a word, it allows you to evaluate the outcomes of your security measures and assess whether or not they fulfil your goals.
It is the purpose of a cyber security audit to provide an assessment of an organization's security posture to its management, vendors, and customers, among other parties.
Audits are critical in supporting businesses in avoiding cyber-related risks. As part of the discovery and testing process, they look for weaknesses or vulnerabilities that might be exploited by a malevolent actor in the case of a cyberattack.
