Why Audit?


Know Your Network

Business owners have enough to worry about on a daily basis. Cybersecurity should be one of the foremost concerns of any entrepreneur, however. The most important thing business owners must do is familiarize themselves with their network. This does not mean becoming an expert in tech on top of running your firm, but you should find out what your strengths and weaknesses are. Outside consultants can help you understand where you need to improve. Once you know which areas to target, develop a plan of action to harden your systems.

Audit Regularly

The best way to stay informed on the state of your network is to audit thoroughly and to do so often. Security audits are a powerful tool to check on your network’s health. They also help management and/or IT staff come up with a plan to improve the current state. Regularly auditing will help you track improvements over time. The main point here is to make sure you are acknowledging weak points and acting on them. Following a regular audit schedule will make sure you are not caught off guard by weaknesses in your network.

When, Not If

All businesses of every size are at risk of cyber-attacks and data loss. The difference is that Fortune 500 companies can spend millions in their cybersecurity programs, and sometimes even that is not enough. Businesses have to have contingencies in place and be prepared to deal with threats like a data breach. Auditing will make it clear what can be exploited and how to prevent it. The businesses that ignore security are the ones that often fall victim to an attack. Going in with the mindset of being prepared for the worst case will make sure you are in good shape to continue your daily tasks. Be aware of your network’s status and you will be in good shape.
