IT System & Cyber Security
All too often we hear in the news how large organisations are compromised and their data is leaked often causing red faces, large fines and loss of consumer confidence. Our IT security policy includes a set of cyber security strategies that ensure that your organisation doesnt suffer this and instead is protected against malware and sophisticated hackers.
If you have doubts about the security of your IT infrastructure then we can perform a comprehensive security and performance review of your entire IT system and network. This is how we do it:
System Security Audit
The system security audit is made up of two separate components:
1 – Computer network performance and security inspection
During the review we will analyse your server, network and computers for a variety of conditions that may affect the performance, stability and security of the network. In order for a computer network to function optimally, it is necessary to ensure that the correct configurations are in place. It is also critical that all software is fully patched to fix any ‘bugs’ and prevent any loss of system performance or reliability. In today’s environment of mass virus, worm and Trojan outbreaks, it is critical to review all networks to ensure that they are adequately protected.
2 – Computer hardware and software system audit
The System Audit section provides a comprehensive audit of all server, network and computer equipment. It includes the audit of software, licensing and configuration. We evaluate what software is running on the network, whether the software is licensed, and make it possible to plan on a medium to long term basis for the replacement of outdated computer equipment.

Unlicensed software may lead to potential civil or criminal legal proceedings, with company Director’s/Proprietors/Partners facing damaging civil penalties. It is, therefore, critical to obtain an audit of all equipment and software, so that the proper precautions can be taken, and the correct procedures put in place to prevent unlicensed usage of software or abuse of the IT infra-structure.
Once done, we conclude by putting together a concise report that covers the aspects where your infrastructure is strong and where you have vulnerabilities. We then propose a strategy to address the existing weakneses and to protect you in the future.
Computer misuse – is your business compliant ?
We also provide advice on the current legislation covering computer and Internet use, and provide the correct documentation to be used to ensure that Directors, management and employees are aware of the correct use of computers and the Internet.
