IT audit support
Audit support for companies
IT plays a crucial role in our lives. That's no different in your organization. Organizations have become increasingly dependent on computerization for running business processes. We understand that organizations want to focus on their core business and that they are increasingly outsourcing automation to specialized service organizations. In the case of outsourcing, it is assumed in many cases that all tasks are in accordance with an agreement, often based on trust alone.
Information security is a hot item and appears, even more often, in the news. Several developments contribute to the increasing importance of information security:
- More and more organizations are applying automation, which also increases the number of risks.
- Many automated systems are connected to the Internet. This entails many risks.
- When connecting internal systems, risks arise as a consequence of the non-ordering of the systems.
If hackers access your system, all personal and company data can be spread very fast. In addition, hackers can make adjustments in the system or damage the entire system. The importance of data security is greater than ever before.
We can provide you with insight into the security risks that we can jointly determine which measures should be taken.
