IT & CyberSecurity Audit

Complyport Specialises in providing governance, risk and compliance services

IT and Cybersecurity Audit

In the face of continuously evolving cyber threats, risk management becomes paramount for financial services institutions. Given the current emphasis on AI progress and FCA’s attention on operational resilience, conducting an IT and cybersecurity audit becomes essential. This audit aids in pinpointing vulnerabilities and provides a chance to proactively address risks posed by external threat actors, preventing potential exploitation.

FCA expects firms to maintain schedules for audits throughout the year as well as other monitoring controls and testing mechanisms (such as penetration tests and vulnerability scans).

The purpose of auditing Information Technology (IT) systems is to enable organisations to address IT challenges, improve the governance and meet stakeholders’ expectations, compliance, and assurance responsibilities in the context of IT.

Demonstrate your IT and cyber security standards to external parties

An IT and cybersecurity audit involves an external, independent evaluation of your information security processes, controls, documented policies, procedures, and staff in order to assess your ability to protect information assets from the effects of cyber threats.

These audits serve as essential tools for effectively managing IT and cyber risks, while also establishing compliance with various regulations and guidelines. The audit reports can be employed to showcase to external parties that your firm maintains the highest levels of IT and cybersecurity standards. Additionally, these reports demonstrate an awareness of the ever-changing landscape of IT and cybersecurity threats, and alignment with standards such as EBA Guidelines, ISO 27001, Cyber Essentials, and GDPR.
