The word “audit” often carries a negative connotation. Facing one may be associated with feelings of dread, like having your teeth pulled or an unplanned visit from your toxic in-laws. Yikes! Avoidance behavior kicks in quickly. Perhaps you’ve heard this one: “So when does a person decide to become an auditor?” Answer: “When he realizes he doesn’t have the charisma to succeed as an undertaker.”
OK, jokes aside. Our IT audits are guaranteed to make you feel more aware and in control of your business environment. In addition, the smart move is to bring someone in from the outside to perform the audit... for all the obvious reasons... oh, the stories we could tell.
Basically, IT audits and assessments are consulting activities that examine and evaluate the current IT landscape of your business. We provide an overview of your current IT infrastructure, highlight the risks within your technology environment, and then outline the steps needed to remedy those risks. SUURV will also provide a 24-month plan to align your technology with the goals of your business.
Furthermore, we identify vulnerabilities, develop tailored solutions, and ensure procedures are followed. SUURV provides audit services across a full array of essential business functions. A successful audit will always consider the laws, regulations, policies, procedures, and best practices relative to the industry or the company. Most importantly, if a risk(s) is uncovered, a comprehensive strategy will be recommended for remediation.
