IT Audit

Information Technology Audits

Whether you are experiencing IT-related disruptions, striving to meet corporate objectives/industry governance, or just want a better understanding of your organization’s security posture, disaster preparedness or system performance, an IT Audit is a great starting point. Designed to analyze all key technical components of your infrastructure (servers, database elements, firewalls, switches) as well as IT-related operational procedures, a thorough audit evaluation will equip your company with the knowledge and tools to succeed –  and reveal potential security and compliance issues that may be putting your company at risk.

Regardless of industry – Health and Medical, Finance, Military and Government, Construction – Compass Consulting has the experience and expertise to formulate audit procedures to satisfy demanding industry principles and practices. Industry best practices form the core of all auditing procedures, as do industry-specific authoritative sources, regulations, standards, and guidelines. Through an extensive inspection of network assets, logs, monitors, and documents, a holistic understanding of your company’s internal systems and controls will be collected.  We will then propose performance-improving corrections and (re)configurations to ensure network reliability, maximum uptime, and peak performance for the end-user. Moreover, Compass will walk you through the tricky landscape of regulatory/legal compliance and data loss issues that often affect both client and company.

At the conclusion of each audit, Client is outfitted with a detailed assessment report containing all audit findings, a comprehensive judgment of your technical environment and resources, and ongoing improvement recommendations. More specifically, Client will have at their disposal a veritable playbook of suggested safeguards, “mission critical” items needing immediate remediation, and contingency planning for the future. At your request, Compass Consulting’s team can meet with your company stakeholders to discuss the audit results and assist with short- and long-term IT planning.
