Information System Auditing

  • Are you backup systems functioning 100% as expected?
  • Are you workflows mapped as efficiently as possible to your underlying IT infrastructure?
  • How much are breaches in IT policy costing you?
  • Is your business at risk of data loss / theft from security breaches?
  • Are your current IT standards inhibiting business efficiency?
  • Would your hardware and software license management survive a legal audit?
  • Where are your vulnerabilities in the dependencies of people, network, and policies?
A business depends on the knowledge, discipline, and initiative of it’s staff. Unfortunately, checks and balances within a business do not always catch every human error. These uncaught errors can easily grow un-noticed into a problem that will cause loss of time, money, and possibly even the entire business.

Periodic regular auditing of your IT system(s) can help uncover minor mistakes and prevent them from developing into large unsolvable problems. With regular auditing, a best case scenario is that the only problem that exists is an inefficient system. All auditing performed by Sir Technology is carried out by fully qualified engineers.

Data Security

  • Are you sure your data is secure from theft?
  • Could your network and server infrastructure be vulnerable to intrusion?
  • Is the integrity of your data policed to prevent accidental data loss?
  • Are you adequately protecting your data from all points of failure and loss?
Information is the life blood of any business. For many businesses, this information is composed of an increasing amount of data stored and transmitted digitally. This creates many potential points of failure in the storage, transmission, and manipulation that occurs as a normal part of business.

Physical storage mechanisms are designed with failure rates. Digital transmission is often performed in an insecure and unreliable fashion. Manipulation of data requires saving that data back to the original position. All of these necessary business functions have many points of accidental failure and vulnerabilities to those with malicious intent.

Having a good Disaster Recovery Plan can assist in recovering from accidental loss of data, but maximising the efficiency of this will require valid and recent data to restore. Procedures for mitigating security risks are radically different to that of other sources of data loss, and should be handled accordingly.
