    Robust and secure IT infrastructure

    Security audit of IT systems and infrastructure 

    Security audit is the basic IT tool used to ensure the resistance of the IT infrastructure to cyberattacks. It is a comprehensive analysis of all aspects affecting the cyber security of your company and its resources – know-how, patents or your client’s data.

    The modern economy is based on the information and the ability to collect, process and use data in order to achieve the strategic goals of the organization. For this reason, systems and other IT resources are a key element in the functioning of both private enterprises and public institutions as well as all kinds of organized entities. Due to their importance for the operations of small, medium and large companies and organizations from virtually every sector of the economy, it is worth investing in solutions that ensure the maximum level of IT security. Audits performed by our team effectively serve this purpose.

    Why is it worth commissioning an IT security audit with Grandmetric?

    We have professional tools, many years of experience and specialist knowledge that allow for precise control of digital resources. We carefully analyze them in terms of resistance to attacks – our task is to detect errors, shortcomings and irregularities that may negatively affect the level of security. We perform an audit of the IT system, software, network connections and hardware, which culminate in a clear report containing conclusions from the analysis and suggested recommendations.

    Thanks to our support, you can be sure that your key data is properly protected against theft and cybercriminals. You gain the ability to implement corrections and modifications, which will result in the highest level of security of IT systems. The IT audit performed by our company covers software and hardware, i.e. computer hardware, therefore the risk of its destruction or failure due to undesirable actions of hackers and malicious applications is reduced.

    Security audit – FAQ 

    How often should IT security audits be conducted?  

    It is best to do this periodically, at least once a year, and whenever changes are made to the systems.  

    How long does a security audit take?  

    An audit, depending on the type, size, and complexity of the structure being audited, can take from a few days to several weeks.  

    How much does it cost to carry out an IT security audit?  

    The rate for the service is determined on a case-by-case basis due to factors such as the type, size and complexity of the system being audited.  

    How to check the competence of IT auditors?  

    The technical competence of the experts carrying out the security audit is confirmed by certificates issued by international cybersecurity organizations. 

    What is the difference between a security audit and a penetration test?  

    A penetration test only deals with its specific part (infrastructure, application, network or website) and is part of a security audit. The audit covers the entire system being audited.

      “In today’s world, the methods and so-called attack vectors and spreading hazards are exceptionally diverse, not to say – sophisticated. We are faced with an ever-increasing number of possible interfaces, protocols, and interfaces with different parts of the IT environment. This is why all places where a potential attack could occur should be taken into account.”
