Objectives of the Cybersecurity Audit
How do you know if your existing security measures provide adequate protection for your Information System?
The main objective of a Cybersecurity Audit is to assess and verify the effectiveness of security controls implemented in an information system or network, with the purpose of protecting sensitive data and information against threats and cyberattacks.
This comprehensive approach allows, among other things:
- Assess Compliance: Verify if the IT security practices are in compliance with current laws, regulations, and standards, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or ISO 27001 standards.
- Identify Vulnerabilities: Detect weaknesses and vulnerabilities in systems, networks, applications, or processes that could be exploited by attackers.
- Evaluate Security Controls: Examine and assess the effectiveness of existing security controls, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, security policies, identity and access management processes, etc.
- Test Resilience: Evaluate the system’s ability to resist and recover from attacks, including penetration tests to simulate real attacks and assess the response capability of security teams.
- Identify Risks: Identify and assess potential risks to which the organization is exposed, as well as the potential impacts of these risks on the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data.
