5 Reasons to Audit Technology
5 Reasons you should have your technology operations audited
Audits can make the most seasoned professional hide in the corner.
At SMIKTECK we prefer to look at audits in a much more positive light. We see audits as a way to continuously improve your technology and ensure it’s aligned with your business operations.
Here are the 5 most important reasons to have your technology audited regularly:
1. Protection and Security
Audits check the integrity of your technology security and ensure the best security is in place. This minimises the risk of cyber-attack and unauthorised access to your network and sensitive data.
2. Data Integrity
Checking the integrity of your stored data means that in the event of an unexpected outage your data is safe, secure and can be retrieved easily. Your data is protected and your business has minimal down time.
3. Business Alignment
Auditing your network ensures the equipment meets the needs of your business and is aligned with your plans for the future. Having the right equipment for the job also improves user experience and increases productivity.
4. Risk Minimisation
Auditing identifies areas for remediation or in other terms, areas where there are opportunities for improvement to systems. Improved security, user experience, business operational needs or better compliance with standards, legislation and regulations.
Compliance is the most important reason to have your systems audited. Audits allow you to check your technology compliance. If it isn’t compliant with best practice what are the areas that require improvement.
And an added extra reason to have your technology audit – Peace of mind!
