This service package is aimed particularly at medium-sized companies which do not have their own in-house IT security department.
The results of the IT Security Quick Check are as follows:
- A report containing an overall assessment of the IT security situation,
- A catalog of prioritized measures derived from this report, which details which measures are to be implemented in order to achieve which security objective and with what capacity, in order to
- Provide management with a basis on which to make their decisions, together with various options (cost/benefit assessment).
The IT Security Quick Check consists of five steps which, in line with Corporate Trust’s consultancy philosophy, take a holistic approach by considering external attacks via the Internet as well as the opportunities for internal attacks (WLANs, network outlets, etc.):
Step 1: Check the available documentation.
Step 2: Determine the security requirements (quick-fire questions):
A workshop is held on your premises with IT staff and specialist stakeholders to quickly determine what the sensitive data and assets that merit protection actually are.
Step 3: Document IT systems (quick-fire questions):
A workshop is held on your premises with IT staff to quickly determine what IT systems are in place and how they are configured; this also involves an analysis of the network map.
Once these three steps are complete, Corporate Trust is in a position to assess the suitability of the company’s IT security measures, which it documents in a report. Required improvements are prioritized and documented in a list of measures.
Step 4: Scan from the Internet:
A brief scan identifies the opportunities for penetrating the company network via the Internet. The results report is updated accordingly.
Step 5: Comprehensive effectiveness test:
Step 5a: In order to be able to test the effectiveness of the documented security measures, a checklist of various test points is drawn up.
Step 5b: Testing the IT systems based on the checklist (this step can be managed in-house if preferred)
A report is drawn up based on the information obtained in these steps, which provides a general assessment of the company’s IT architecture and data protection measures from a technical security point of view.
