The Integrity of Your IT Security
The industry standard is to have a third party conduct your information security audits to receive an unbiased opinion and guarantee that your systems are audited honestly.
Protection of your confidential data can encompass numerous ethical and legal requirements, and understanding these requirements is important to ensure your business remains law-abiding.
Information Security Audits
Through IT consulting in Edmonton, Toronto and Vancouver, your business can prepare for these audits, while establishing benchmarks and instilling a familiarity in best practices.
There are two types of information security audits your business should follow.
Checking the vulnerabilities of your systems and double-checking any and all backdoor access to your data can showcase how easy it would be to break into your systems. You can then create a framework that prevents this access from occurring.
Make sure your data is on strict lockdown in accordance with industry regulations.
These audits can assess compliance and vulnerability across all of your systems including:
- Network vulnerabilities
- Controls and access (passwords, physical, as well as the segregation of duties)
- Application security
- Data encryption
At Keeran Networks, we want to ensure your network security audit goes off without a hitch. That's why we strive to provide complete communication throughout the process and provide easy-to-follow steps to take if we do encounter problems in your security.
Nessus Vulnerability Scanner
Keeran Networks uses industry-leading technology to get full visibility into your vulnerabilities.
With the Nessus Vulnerability Scanner, we can audit a wide range of technologies including operating systems, network devices, databases, web servers, hypervisors used to run virtual machines, and critical infrastructure.
Examples of vulnerabilities and exposures Nessus can scan for include:
• Vulnerabilities that could allow unauthorized control or access to sensitive data on a system.
• Misconfiguration (e.g. open mail relay, missing patches, etc.).
• Default passwords, a few common passwords, and blank/absent passwords on some system accounts. Nessus can also call Hydra (an external tool) to launch a dictionary attack.
• Denials of service vulnerabilities
