Security Auditing Types

1

Internal IT security audits

Value:
  • Profound knowledge of the company's internal processes and IT environment allows the internal auditors to gain deep insights in a relatively short time.

2

External IT security audits

A company has its security controls reviewed by an independent organization, either a security audit service provider or a certified authority.

Value:
  • An unbiased evaluation of security controls by experienced professionals helps reveal critical security gaps, including the less obvious ones.
  • Attestation letters or compliance certifications provided by external auditors serve as proof of the company's high cybersecurity posture and due diligence.

The Scope of Security Audits by Sherdil Cloud

We rely on the best practice guidelines outlined by CIS Center for Internet Security to perform an all-around security auditing. Depending on the customer’s request, we can check several or all of the following security management areas.

Inventory and control of enterprise IT assets
  • Listing all the hardware assets that need security monitoring and protection: end-user devices, network devices, IoT devices, servers.
  • Identifying assets with insufficient cybersecurity controls.
Inventory and control of software assets
  • Listing all operating systems and applications used by a company.
  • Checking if the software is properly updated and patched.
Data protection
  • Identifying what sensitive data the company deals with: trade secrets, intellectual property, personal health information, cardholder data, etc.
  • Defining where the sensitive data is stored: on a company's servers, in the cloud, on end-user devices, if it is shared with third-party systems.
  • Checking if the sensitive data is properly secured in line with relevant regulations (HIPAA, PCI DSS/PCI SSF, ISO 27001, ISO 9001, ISO 13485, GDPR).
Secure configuration for hardware and software
  • Checking if insecure default settings are used.
  • Evaluating the efficiency of software and hardware security settings.
  • Identifying unnecessary applications, features, and user accounts that should be disabled or removed to reduce the attack surface.
Access control management
  • Reviewing authorization, authentication, password management, and access monitoring policies, procedures, and tools.
  • Checking if the users’ access rights match their roles.
Continuous vulnerability management
  • Checking if there is an established process of proactive vulnerability detection and evaluating its efficiency.
Security log management
  • Checking if a company aggregates security logs in a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system.
  • Analyzing security log data: authentication events (successful logins/failed login attempts), session activity, changes to configuration settings, software installed or deleted, system or application errors, etc.
Email and web protection
  • Revising security features and tools designed to protect the main communication channels.
Malware defenses
  • Revising the availability and use of tools intended to prevent malware implantation and spread.
