“Cybercrime’s total damages make its economic impact larger than the GDP of all but two countries: the U.S. and China.”- Cybercrime Magazine.
In recent times, the business landscape has outgrown the physical presence and so has the threat landscape too!
With the massive shift to cloud infrastructure & hybrid work culture, organizational data & network has become perimeter less. So, businesses need to adopt the“Perimeter less Security architecture!” Also, with the ever-growing tech stack, software products & solutions, organizations must consistently reengineer their security practices as per market trends.
In this blog post, let’s discuss the ins and outs of cyber security audits!
A Cyber security audit is the broad evaluation of an organization’s security posture in the aspects of business impact, user identity, endpoints, network, cyber resilience, data & compliance management. These assessments must be organizational-specific, as every line of business has its vital industry standards to be accomplished. Periodical security audits help businesses in protecting employees, customers, data, and devices.
While getting started with security assessment, you need to be clear about:
Depending on this curated information, organizations must strategize & perform the assessment to build a robust security practice.
Predominantly, there are four types of security audits performed by organizations. Each one serves a sole purpose, and the best practice is to combine two or more in conjunction. Let’s get into the details of types of security audits!
Only the external security auditor holds the public availability of business data that must be inspected.
Organizational IT teams render meticulous details to the security auditor to perform the security evaluation.
In this approach, the security auditor will be provided with basic details of the IT infrastructure to initiate the assessment process. Further, the auditors gather comprehensive information on the threat landscape on-demand.
In this security assessment, organizations can unveil the perilous areas that would be exposed in case of cyber-attacks. Further, the current security practices that mitigate these perils are identified.
If required, your IT teams can refactor the mitigation strategy based on a periodical analysis of threat patterns.
Penetration testing (also known as a pen test) is the process of creating a breach on the organizational IT systems in an authorized manner. This audit can be performed as an internal, external & hybrid approach.
With this security assessment, your IT team spotlights the perilous areas that need to be refactored. By fortifying the defense walls & mitigation strategies, organizations can slash the security debts to near-zero.
Every line of business has a specific set of compliance regulations (). These compliance regulations are revised by the authorized community periodically. Organizations can’t focus on these regulations and that’s why you must rely on AVASOFT, the leading security auditing company!

Organizations can identify the potential vulnerabilities that cause a significant threat to business continuity with this assessment. As the consumer, data & employees grow, the vulnerability grows!
So, every organization must perform vulnerability audits periodically. Based on these vulnerability assessment reports, internal teams can plan and insulate these loopholes to bolster cyber resilience.
Organizations can establish their level of cyber maturity in the aspects of technology, people, & processes by conducting this audit. Primarily, cyber maturity is measured based on Cyber Maturity Model Certification and Cyber Capability Maturity Model.
This audit helps in identifying the technology & infrastructure gaps and formulating best-in-class security practices for your organization. Also, it showcases the critical areas of investment in your IT landscape.
This security assessment evaluates the organization’s competence in disaster recovery. Cyber resiliency assessment determines the precise cyber security posture of your organization.
