Network Security Installation

When most people hear the word “audit,” their first reflex is to cringe. Usually, it means having some outside team come in to review everything and tell them what they’re doing wrong. However, the team here at Compuquip Cybersecurity gets excited about audits—at least, when they’re network security audits, that is.

What is a network security audit, how does it work, and why should you run one?

Explaining Network Security Audits

The network security audit is a process that many managed security service providers (MSSPs) offer to their customers. In this process, the MSSP investigates the customer’s cybersecurity policies and the assets on the network to identify any deficiencies that put the customer at risk of a security breach.

Why You Should Undergo Security Audits Regularly

Network security audits are important because they help you identify your biggest security risks so you can make changes that will protect your company from those risks. That’s pretty common knowledge. However, a network security audit is never a “one-and-done” solution. You’re going to want to run such audits at least once a year (if not more frequently).

You’ll probably end up adding new software to your business at some u’re creating new security endpoints as well—potentially creating new security vulnerabilities. New software programs—whether they’re running on the individual devices or on “the cloud” as an SaaS solution—can also introduce new vulnerabilities in your security.
