    What do cyber security audits cover?

    Cyber security audits typically involve the following key components.

    Magnifier-01

    Initial Assessment

    This involves a review of your cyber security policies and procedures to ensure they are comprehensive, up-to-date, and aligned with industry best practices and regulatory requirements. This includes evaluating policies such as password management, access controls, data classification, incident response, and disaster recovery.

    Settings-01

    Technical Evaluation

    This component involves assessing your technical infrastructure, including its networks, systems, and applications, to identify potential vulnerabilities and weaknesses. This may include vulnerability scanning, penetration testing, and other technical assessments to identify potential security gaps.

      Determining the source and scope of the breach

      The first step in mitigating the risk of a data breach is to identify how it happened and what data was compromised. Our investigation services can help businesses to identify the attackers, the methods they used, and the specific data that was accessed or stolen.

      Team members discussing

      Containing the breach and preventing additional damage

      Once the source and scope of the breach have been determined, such breach investigation services can help businesses to contain the breach and prevent further damage. This may involve taking measures such as isolating affected systems, changing passwords, and notifying affected individuals.

      Team discussing plans

      Recovering compromised data

      If data has been stolen or compromised, Cambridge IT Security will help businesses to recover it. This may involve working with law enforcement to identify the attackers and retrieve the data, or using specialised tools and methods to recover deleted or encrypted data.

      Remediating vulnerabilities and preventing future breaches

      Once the breach has been contained and the data recovered, this is where data breach investigation services come in. It helps businesses to identify and remediate the vulnerabilities that allowed the breach to occur. This may involve implementing new security procedures, such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and encryption.

          Document-01

          External verification

          Cyber Essentials only requires a self-assessment questionnaire. However, Cyber Essentials Plus, requires an independent external IT security professional to audit the implementation of technical controls through validation testing and examination of policies and procedures.

          Clipboard-01

          Assurance Framework

          Company’s must develop a framework explaining how they will maintain compliance with Cyber Essentials controls on an ongoing basis across changes to systems, offices, employees and more.

          Test-01

          Simulation testing

          As well as testing the current efficacy of controls, external auditors must simulate real-world cyber attack scenarios. This is to evaluate whether the company’s security posture stands up to threats.

          Cog-01

          Ongoing audits

          The certification must be renewed annually. This is also including an onsite audit, ensuring security provisions do not reduce over time. Audits ensure that as the threat landscape changes, controls are kept up to date.

          Tick-01

          Cyber insurance

          £25K of cyber insurance coverage is included to support incident response and recovery costs in the aftermath of a breach.

                  Cyber Essentials helps guard your business from the most common cyber threats and demonstrate the commitment you have towards cyber security. It is a certification program focused on basic cyber security controls that was created by the UK government’s National Cyber Security Centre and the Information Assurance for Small and Medium Enterprises (IASME) consortium.

                  The key things to know about Cyber Essentials are:

                  Document-01

                  It specifies a core set of technical controls around five key areas: firewalls, secure configuration, access control, malware protection, and patch management. Businesses must demonstrate they have implemented controls in each area in order to be certified.

                  Network VPN1-01

                  The controls defined represent IT security best practices that are simple and inexpensive for most businesses to implement, yet provide protection against the most common cyber attacks.

                  Certificate-01

                  Once the certification has been achieved, it must be renewed annually, providing an incentive for companies to stay on top of maintaining their defences.

                  Clipboard-01

                  Cyber Essentials has tiers of certification that require different levels of robustness and types of assessments by accredited external auditors. Cyber Essentials Plus is discussed in the next section.

                  Tick-01

                  The program represents a cost-effective starting point for cyber security. While more advanced certifications like ISO 27001 might be overkill for many SMEs, Cyber Essentials provides a strong baseline aligned to common cyber threats.
