security audits

tecways conducts security audit as a systematic evaluation of the security of a company's information system by measuring how well it conforms to a set of established criteria. tecways security audit assesses typically thoroughly the security of the system's physical configuration and environment, software, information handling processes, and user practices. The Security audits can be used to determine regulatory compliance, in the wake of legislation (such as HIPAA, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and the California Security Breach Information Act) that specifies how organizations must deal with information.

Security audits, vulnerability assessments, and penetration testing are the three main types of security diagnostics. Each of the three diagnostics takes a different approach and are complementing each other. Security audits measure an information system's performance against a list of criteria. A vulnerability assessment, on the other hand, involves a comprehensive study of an entire information system, seeking potential security weaknesses. Penetration testing is a covert operation, in which a security expert tries a number of attacks to ascertain whether or not a system could withstand the same types of attacks from a malicious hacker. In penetration testing, the feigned attack can include anything a real attacker might try, such as social engineering.

tecways supports organizations with all three diagnostics and helps them to come up with a strategy to protect their IT system in an ongoing manner.
