Understand Your IT Risks, Potential Business Impact and Better Leverage your IT Resources

The IT environment of most companies developed gradually. Over time, problems can emerge, including performance gaps, redundancies, inefficiencies and unintended information silos. Eventually, it can be difficult to determine what is and isn’t working. Without the proper perspective, it can be difficult to know where to invest your IT resources.

An IT audit and assessment can help manage and respond to risk while gaining a better understanding of your environment. We will assess your It strengths and weaknesses and give you a detailed report and in-person presentation outlining the current state of your technology. We will work with you to determine which actions to take in regard to the gaps (if any) identified in the previous step. This is an ongoing process, it never ends. We don’t simply help you to become compliant or secure and stop, it’s a constant daily challenge that will allow you to “click with confidence” and invest more wisely.

An IT audit will evaluate IT issues including:

  • Lack of or outdated policies
  • Lack of vulnerability scanning or penetration testing
