Network Security Assessments

The goal of a computer network security assessment, (also known as a security audit or security review), is to ensure that necessary controls are integrated into the design and integration of a network. A properly completed security assessment should provide documentation outlining any security gaps between design and approved corporate security policies.

Network Security Assessment

Performing a security assessment can help an organization in three ways.

  • - Organization’s management can decide to cancel the project in it’s current state,
  • - Allocate the necessary resources to correct the security gaps, or
  • - Accept the risk based on an informed risk versus reward analysis.

You may feel that your organization is secure from theft,  viruses, hackers, or malicious employees, but if you have not ever performed a professional IT security risk assessment on your network environment, you cannot be certain that your company is safe. At the end of the day, your data – and your entire company – may be at risk.

Is your mission-critical application running on vulnerable server? Are your employees download questionable software? If you had lost your computers tomorrow, would you stay in business?

Understanding where your risks exist, and the best way to control them is critical to your business.  Most organizations rely on IT security experts to assess their networks and computer systems on a regular basis. It is a good practice to make a yearly risk assessment.
