Why every business needs a full cyber security audit

Cyber attacks, data breaches and privacy violations pose a real and significant threat to businesses of all sizes. The results can be costly, not just financially, but in terms of the time and resources required to repair the damage done. RGB Solutions can help you stay one step ahead of cyber threats by minimising your business’ online vulnerabilities and proactively monitoring potential cyber risks. It all starts with a cyber security audit.


What is a cyber security audit?
A cyber security audit is a comprehensive review of your entire business IT system. From network devices and software updates, to policies and procedures – RGB Solutions’ IT specialists will analyse every part of your IT infrastructure.

Based on the findings of the cyber security audit, they can make recommendations tailored to your specific needs, and action any necessary response measures to ensure your data and your business is safeguarded.


How to prepare for your cyber security audit
For a cyber security audit to be as thorough as possible, the RGB Solutions IT experts will need to gather some vital information about your everyday business operations, so inform your team when the audit is expected to take place and ensure any relevant team members are readily available to answers any questions.

Make a list of all devices that form your network, including desktop computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones – whether they are used in the workplace or remotely. Detail all controls already in place, such as anti-virus software. And gather together all your relevant documentation, including any information relating to your company cybersecurity policies such as your current incident response plan.
