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 vectors of attacks 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.”
