Why You Need An IT Security Audit
If your business becomes victim to hacking which results in the loss of personal data there may be severe consequences. Regulations such as GDPR could result in significant penalties for your business. Furthermore, customers don’t take kindly to their data being mismanaged. Combined with the potential bad press the loss of personal data could be very costly for your business.
With all the potential backlash your business could face from a data breach, it is paramount that you identify and fix all weaknesses in your security. A cyber security audit will help you discover these weaknesses and work on them, improving your security before anyone can take advantage of it.
No security is 100% effective. Hackers are continually looking for new ways to get a hold of your data. If they are successful you will be tasked with demonstrating that your business has done the necessary work to try to protect the data to mitigate the consequences and penalties you will suffer.
