What Are Security Audits

A security audit is a systematic and measurable technical evaluation of how the organization’s security policy conforms to a set of established criteria at a specific site. To put it simply, security audits are generally an extensive and formal overview of an organization’s physical attributes (networks, firewalls, hardware, etc.) and standard operating practices. Thorough security audits are an ongoing process of defining and maintaining effective security policies that are in regulatory compliance with legislation that specifies how organizations must deal with information.
