Our audits and surveys will identify risks and inadequacies in an organization's asset protection, loss control, or security program. We will not only report such findings but also provide cost-effective recommendations.
A. Third Party Security Audit
A third party security audit involves having an independent party review a specific process or program against established criteria. Unlike a first party (self) audit or a second party (peer-to-peer) audit, SUR-CSS security consultants have no direct or personal involvement with or allegiance to client operations being audited; and can easily maintain an un-biased and impartial mindset in regard to all engagements.
B. Security Audit Benefits
A third party security audit provides several key benefits as it
- 1. Transfers knowledge to clients enabling them to better protect their people, assets and information
- 2. Reduces risk through the application of industry best practices in the audit from over thirty governmental / private organizations
- 3. Highlights unknown vulnerability – what you don't know can hurt you
- 4. Provides assurances that the audited entity is taking expected steps to meet organizational and regulatory security requirements
