Compliance with BS EN / IEC ISO 27001 IMS

A compliance audit can be best described as a thorough and complete assessment of a company’s compliance to guidelines and laws set out by the respective regulatory authority of that particular industry. A Compliance audit is carried out both internally by an organisation, and externally.

The audit evaluates the strength and thoroughness of compliance in accordance with specific applicable sections and clauses taken from the BS EN ISO/IEC 27001 IMS Standard.

On completion of the compliance audit, the organisation is issued with a detailed report outlining any deficiencies and cross alignment of other applicable standards pertaining to Business Continuity Management Systems.

Compliance with BS EN ISO 22301 BCMS

ISO 22301 specifies the requirements for a management system to protect against, reduce the likelihood of, and ensure your business recovers from disruptive incidents. What, precisely, is examined in a compliance audit will vary depending upon whether an organisation is a public or private company, what kind of data it handles and if it transmits or stores sensitive financial data. For instance, healthcare providers that store or transmit e-health records, like personal health information, are subject to the Data Protection Act requirements, financial service companies that transmit credit card data are subject to the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority requirements. In each case, the organisation must be able to demonstrate compliance by producing an audit trail, often generated by data from event log management software.

Again, an audit evaluates the strength and meticulousness of compliance in accordance with specific applicable sections and clauses taken from the BS EN ISO 222301 BCMS Standard.

On completion of the compliance audit the organisation is issued with a detailed report outlining any deficiencies, and cross alignment of other applicable standards pertaining to Business Continuity Management Systems.

PCS DSS Data Security Standard (Section 9)

A compliance audit is specifically aimed at Section (9) of the PCI DSS Data Security Standard in relation to Physical Security Measures deployed at Data Centres. It is a review of an organisation's adherence to regulatory guidelines under Section (9).

The audit evaluates the strength and diligence of compliance in accordance with specific applicable sections and clauses taken from the PCI DSS Data Security Standard.

On completion of the compliance audit, the organisation is issued with a detailed report outlining any deficiencies and cross alignment of other applicable standards pertaining to PCI DSS.

Return on Investment audits

This type of audit is conducted in relation to Security Manned Guarding provisions against the application of electronic security systems and return on investment.

Dilapidation and Assurance Audits

This type of audit is carried out in regard to physical security hardware, electronic systems, Security control room workflow and design. The audit looks at specified areas of the company’s protective measures and evaluates the assurance on the operability and capability of those measures.

On completion of an audit the company is issued with a detailed report outlining any deficiencies makes recommendations on how to rectify the situation to mitigate risk. It is astute to remember that a security audit can prove to be effective in fortifying the security of your organisation, and can create critical, actionable insights to improve company defences.
