Your organisation should use cybersecurity policies to outline the rules and regulations to be followed when handling sensitive data. These policies will help us rank the sensitivity of your assets and determine how secure they are. We also look at the following:
Before auditing cybersecurity, your organisation will need to consolidate all of its cybersecurity policies. These should be documented to provide our expert cybersecurity auditors with enough information to understand your security posture better.
Some of the security policies your organisation should ideally provide to our team includes:
Acceptable Use Policy (AUP)
Access Control Policy (ACP)
This policy contains set rules that prevent unauthorised physical or remote access to sensitive company data. It defines the specific conditions under which access to data may take place.
Change Management Policy
This policy ensures that changes to your organisation’s IT systems or networks do not affect business continuity. It is also a way to ensure that the relevant stakeholders have approved all changes.
Incident Response (IR) Policy
IR policies comprise six steps that outline your organisation’s response to a security incident. These include:
Preparation and precautions taken
Remote Access Policy
This policy outlines the rules for remote users who access the company network. It will include details of what is expected from the user before, during, and after they access your organisation’s data. It also includes exceptions and disciplinary actions in the case of violations.
This is a set of procedures that details the use of emails and other electronic communication tools within your network.
Your organisation’s IT team should provide a detailed network diagram to Mindfire's tech team to help us understand your infrastructure. This diagram can either be logical or physical.
Collate all privacy laws and regulations that govern your business for our auditors to use during the information security audit. You will need to provide details of each requirement and the steps your organisation has taken to fulfil them.
Your security team is best placed to help our team fully understand your company’s infrastructure and the security measures and controls you have implemented. Therefore, we will require a complete list of all security personnel and details of their roles and responsibilities if we need to consult with them.
Our team will audit the measures taken to protect sensitive data, such as encryption and authentication. We also examine your practices to protect data as it is being sent or received.
This is an investigation into the security posture of networks and systems that can be accessed via the internet.
