Network Security Auditing and network vulnerability Services
Network Security Auditing is the first step in truly securing a computer or network environment. The purpose of a network security audit is to ensure that a company has followed the necessary steps to protect data and to track access for accountability.
Security audits involve a set of periodic, pro-active compliance and assurance activities that help assess the security of the IT infrastructure of your organization. The audit encompasses security architecture, policy and vulnerability assessment.
Our network security audits are performed on entire networks by ethical hackers known as white hat hackers to assess potential network vulnerabilities. Audits may also be performed on a portion of the computer network Using Seven Mentor’s ethical hacking team can simulate an attack without interrupting crucial network services that will not only test the network but also staff awareness and response based on the assessment. Seven Mentor will create a detailed a report of vulnerabilities and proposed best practices for your network environment.
To supplement the network security audit Seven Mentor will review and /or draft computer guidelines, policies and procedures. The establishment of clear policies and procedures will help protect the company by advising employees of expected conduct with respect to proprietary information and use of company equipment.
Seven Mentor’s customized network security audits address the following:
- Internal network access
- External network access
- Wireless (802.11 & Bluetooth)
- Written policies
Security policies are the backbone of any corporation’s security posture & it must reflect the findings of asset & risk assessments. These policies are crucial in implementing & establishing network security standards.
How does it work?
We have developed a sensible three-stage program that helps investigate and understand your business in an IT context:
Stage 1-People and Processes
The first step in the audit is to understand what you want, need and expect from your IT systems. We will investigate the resources of your system and how the systems are managed.
Stage 2-Technical Catalogue
A team of engineers will go through your servers and your networking equipment. They will compile detailed network documentation, listing all the hardware assets with their specification, and identify all of the software that is installed across the network.
Stage 3- Report and Recommendations
Following completion of the technical catalogue, we will consolidate and analyse all of the results in order to provide a report on the current state of your IT and set out our recommendations for improvement.
