An IT assessment should provide a holistic view of your network health to help you better understand where your technology is now, where your business technology should be, and a clear path to align technology with your business goals. This includes assessments of security policies, network health, active directory, user counts, backups, servers, firewalls and more.
An IT assessment should consider:
- Step 1: Know What Your Current IT Security Risks Are
Getting an accurate view of your current infrastructure is the first step in a successful assessment. Auditing and examining existing assets and processes gives the Diamond IT team a starting point from which to work. Instead of a report full of raw data converted into unintelligible graphs and charts, we’ll study your workflows and incorporate your business objectives into the assessment to provide an actionable plan with which to move forward. When the IT risk assessment is complete, your organization will not only have a complete understanding of how your network is operating, but also suggestions for areas of improvement and a detailed plan of how to accomplish your IT goals.
- Step 2: Identify and Address the IT Gaps Holding You Back
After creating a baseline, we take your specific risk profile into account, so you know exactly which steps require immediate action and why it matters. Then we prioritize our recommendations based on our assessment of your current IT environment, budget and needs. Our team includes a deep bench with Certified Information Systems Security Professionals (CISSP), Certified Ethical Hackers (CEH) and senior cybersecurity analysts. All reviews are conducted and delivered by seasoned Chief Technology Officers (CTO) and Chief Security Officers (CSO).
- Step 3: Understand Your Security Risks
It’s no surprise that the top concern of most every business, large or small, is security. Making sure that your business information and data is protected is vital if you are going to keep operating. Imagine, what’s the real impact if client data was stolen or if your intellectual property made its way into unauthorized hands? The price of good security is nothing in comparison to the potential cost of a security breach.
But understanding the importance of securing your network and successfully securing it can be two very different things. Everyone understands the need to guard against intrusions, but not everyone knows what it takes to actually accomplish that goal. Thankfully, an IT assessment provides a comprehensive roadmap to lead your business from vulnerable to solidly secure. We’ve provided hundreds of security assessments and action plans across the United States. From established businesses to municipal agencies, from non-profit organizations to startups, Diamond IT understands what it means to provide peace of mind so you can focus on running your business.
