The main aim of security audits is to validate controls in place and ensure they compare with any policy documents in which procedures are laid to meet the requirements.

Information security is necessary to ensure business continuity and minimise damage by preventing and reducing the impact of security incidents.

Experience has shown that the following factors are often critical to the successful implementation of information security within an organisation:

  1. security objectives and activities being based on management objectives.
  2. visible support and commitment from top management;
  3. a good understanding of the security risks, both threats and vulnerabilities, to organisation assets and of the level of security inside the organisation, which should be based on the value and importance of the assets;
  4. effective marketing of security to all managers and employees;
  5. the distribution of information security policy and standards expected to all employees and contractors.
