Information Digital Audit
Checks susceptibility to threat with Superiora
An IT audit is the study and evaluation of an organization’s IT infrastructure, applications, data use and management, policies, procedures, and operational processes against recognized standards or established policies.
Why IT Audit is important
Many firms, regardless of size or scope of operation, have realized the need of utilizing information technology to stay ahead in today’s global context. Companies have invested in information systems because they understand the multiple advantages IT can offer to their operations. Management should recognize the need of ensuring that IT systems are dependable, secure, and resistant to cyber threats.
The goal of information security is to secure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of data. Data confidentiality refers to the protection of information against disclosure to unauthorized parties. Bank account statements, commercial secrets, and personal information should all be kept private and discreet. Protecting this data is an important aspect of information security.
Data integrity refers to the safeguarding of information from unlawful modification. Only when information has not been tampered with is it valuable. Inappropriately updated information can be costly, such as if you completed a $1,000 transaction and someone changed it to $100,000. Data protection from unwanted manipulation is critical in information security.
The availability of information refers to ensuring that authorized individuals have access to the information as and when it is required. In this day and age, denying legitimate users access to information is a very regular assault. Natural calamities such as floods or incidents such as power outages or fire can also prevent users from accessing data. Back-up is essential for ensuring data availability. Backup data should ideally be stored in a remote location to ensure its protection, but this distance should account for the time required to recover the backed-up data.
