IT security audit

A security audit is a regular auditing procedure of IT security processes

Lasting security with a regular IT security audit

IT security is a running target. It is never 100% achieved and goals, once reached, are quickly undone as a result of external influences. A regular security audit helps you achieve a goal and keep to it through constant improvement and assessment.

Benefits

Regularity

A regular audit helps you keep to a target or even improve on it after it has been reached. Without a regular audit, a secure IT situation can quickly become insecure again

PDCA cycle

The Plan Do Check Act cycle, which appears in a wide range of standards, contributes to ongoing improvement. A regular audit is the basis for this cycle.
