IT Security Risk Assessment

In terms of losses per year, Cybercrime has surpassed the U.S. illegal drug trade in revenues per year. Cybercrime is now worth in excess of US$105 billion in losses each year. We live in a world today where the punishment for shop-lifting poses a greater punishment than stealing billions of dollars online.

Cybercribe has become a low-risk, high-reward profession and the purportrators could be living right next door.

Fortunately, defence strategies exist that help protect business IT systems, information and networks. Amongst all of the various security strategies that exist, 2way Technology employs the foundations of the National Security Agency method of Defense in Depth and as an addition to Defense in Depth, we include a number of areas not defined within Defense in Depth when conducting our reviews.

Defense in Depth is a “best practices” strategy that relies on the intelligent application of multiple techniques and technologies. 2way Technology's Security and Risk Audits asses your IT systems for compliance against the Defense in Depth standards including the following areas:

  • Information Security
  • Physical Security
  • Company IT Policy & Procedures
  • Authentication & Password Security
  • Antivirus & AntiSpam Software
  • User & Access Privileges
  • Firewalls
  • Network Configuration
  • Intrusion Detection Systems
  • Packet Filtering
  • Routers & Switches
  • Proxy Servers
  • Virtual Private Networks
  • Access Logging & Auditing
  • Biometrics
  • Timed Access Control
  • Personnel (where applicable)

IT Security and IT Security Risk Auditing Benefits

The benefits of conducting regular IT Security and Risk Audits and more importantly, continuing to maintain the Defense in Depth principles are significant. The placement of protection mechanisms, procedures and policies is intended to increase the dependability of our client's IT security systems.

Multiple layers of defense prevent security breaches and direct attacks against critical systems. IT Security Assessments and IT Security Risk Audits not only prevent security breaches, but also significantly reduce and mitigate the impact of a breach.
