Cybercrime is the most destructive and widespread threat facing small businesses. As of the pandemic in 2020, remote working has only enabled the growth of cybercrime. A cyber security audit is a comprehensive review of an organization’s IT infrastructure. Its goal is to minimize vulnerabilities that could result in financial loss or data breaches.

Based on company operations and the data they manage; each firm has different cyber security vulnerabilities. Therefore, the business must conduct cyber security audits while taking into account the following factors:

  • Technical and operational activity
  • Possible data breaches among commercial and financial activities
  • Possible tampering with compliance and regulations.


A security audit evaluates a company’s information system’s security systematically by gauging how closely it adheres to predetermined standards. A thorough audit often evaluates the security of the system’s software, information handling procedures, user behavior, and physical setup and environment. In the wake of legislation defining how businesses must handle information, security audits are frequently used to establish regulatory compliance.

The three primary categories of security diagnostics are penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, and security audits. Each of the three approaches is different and can be more appropriate for a specific objective. Security audits compare the effectiveness of an information system to a set of standards. To make sure that data and assets are safeguarded, every company should conduct regular security audits. The audit’s scope should be established initially, and it should include all company assets related to information security, including computer hardware, phones, networks, email, data, and any items that grant access, including cards, tokens, and passwords.

Threats to assets in the past and the future must then be examined. Information security professionals should stay current on new concerns and corporate security strategies. The auditing team should next estimate how much destruction might occur under dangerous circumstances. An intrusion prevention system, often known as a plan and controls for preserving business operations after the danger has materialized, should be in place. Evaluation and implementation of business requirements are major considerations during the audit process.

Following the completion of your audit and delivery of the ensuing recommendations, the next course of action should be decided using the information in this package of guidance. If your organization is facing serious and imminent risks, you must take immediate action to address these issues.
