This service aims examination of areas related to IT Governance and information security on conformance to the selected criteria like ISO27001, COBIT 5, and NIST800-53. The scope of an audit depends on the objective. The main purpose is verification whether security management system satisfies business objectives and how the existing controls adhere to the risk assessment, best practice standards and/or the other applicable regulatory compliance requirements.

Threats tend to occur where security officers expect them the least. Naturally, an intruder will not spend months trying to force a well-locked door, but will look for weak points and vulnerabilities in those information systems where security is not a priority. The combination of negligence and seemingly minor vulnerabilities may end up with serious consequences and lead to the system being compromised. The acknowledged way to reduce such risks is to employ penetration testing. Penetration testing focuses on the ability of the tested system to withstand against the hackers attacks.

Certification is also of great value to organizations that want to prove to third parties that they are operating according to good information security standards. We offer our support and compliance audit services to make your information security management system certification journey much smooth and sustainable one.
