Comprehensive Assessment of Your IT Infrastructure
An IT Audit conducted by Qbit provides a thorough evaluation of your company’s IT systems and infrastructure. Our expert team analyses various aspects of your IT environment, including network security, software configurations, access controls, data protection measures, and more. This comprehensive assessment enables us to identify potential vulnerabilities and areas for improvement, ensuring the protection of your company’s digital assets against cyber threats.
Security Frameworks: Essential 8 and NIST
At Qbit, we base our IT Audit on renowned security frameworks such as the Essential 8 and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology). These frameworks consist of a set of best practices and guidelines that outline essential security measures to protect against cyber attacks. By aligning our assessment with these frameworks, we ensure that your IT systems adhere to industry standards, minimising the risk of security breaches and data loss.
The Essential 8
The Essential 8 is a cybersecurity framework developed by the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD). It outlines eight essential mitigation strategies that organizations should implement to effectively mitigate cyber threats. These strategies cover areas such as application whitelisting, patching applications, restricting administrative privileges, and regular backups, among others. By assessing your IT infrastructure against the Essential 8, our IT Audit helps identify any gaps or weaknesses that need to be addressed, enhancing your company’s overall security posture.
NIST Cybersecurity Framework
The NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a globally recognised set of guidelines designed to help organisations manage and mitigate cybersecurity risks. It provides a structured approach to assess and improve cybersecurity capabilities across five core functions: Identify, Protect, Detect, Respond, and Recover. Our IT Audit evaluates your IT systems based on these functions, enabling us to identify potential vulnerabilities and recommend appropriate measures to enhance your company’s cybersecurity defences.
