When it comes to cybersecurity, organizations in the United States don’t know what they don’t know…
NEW YORK, NY, August 08, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — CompCiti Business Solutions, Inc., long known for its business networking services in New York, today announced it has added IT auditing and cybersecurity to its portfolio of services. CompCiti Vice President Sam Vohra noted that cybersecurity is growing in importance today, though small businesses and organizations don’t quite realize it yet.
“We rely on technology today like never before, which is exactly why it’s so important to protect those systems,” Vohra said. “Smaller organizations mistakenly believe that they are at lower risk of attack than high-profile companies. They are actually at higher risk. Cyber criminals, like most criminals, tend to go for low-hanging fruit, and smaller companies are much more likely to have holes in their cybersecurity.”
The payout for the cybercriminals might be less, but so too is the amount of work needed to break in – and the risk of getting caught is much lower.
IT Audit the First Step to Beefing Up Cybersecurity
“One of the things I’ve noticed is that organizations simply do not have any idea what their cybersecurity risks are, never mind what security holes they may have,” Vohra said.
An information technology (IT) audit – also known as an information systems (IS) audit – provides a clear picture of an organization’s cybersecurity. It is essentially a risk assessment tool to determine how secure an organization’s IT systems are. The IT audit takes into account all of an organization’s complex systems including multi-layered networks, cloud services, mobile offices, social media, mobile apps, integrated communication systems, CRMs, and other interconnected systems and software.
In July 2017, Vohra received his Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISA) designation to help serve CompCiti’s clients better. CISA Certification is awarded by ISACA, an independent and international body which serves 140,000 IT professionals in 180 countries. ISACA has been globally recognized as benchmark setter for IT auditing since it was founded in 1969.
“CompCiti’s job is to help our clients increase their cybersecurity to reduce the risk of attack, preventing them from becoming a target in the first place,” Vohra said.
