Behavioral audit

Vulnerabilities are often not related to a technical weakness in an organization’s IT systems, but rather related to individual behavior within the organization. A simple example of this is users leaving their computers unlocked or being vulnerable to phishing attacks. ePlus Systems audit will include a penetration test in which auditors attempt to gain access to as much of the system as possible, from both the perspective of a typical employee as well as an outside hacker.

IT personnel – All IT personnel should be authorized to access the data rooms (key cards, login ID, secure passwords). IT/organization employees are adequately educated about IT equipment and properly perform their jobs.   ePlus Systems auditor will observe and interview IT employees to satisfy their objectives.

Equipment – ePlus Systems auditor will verify that all IT equipment is working properly and effectively. Equipment utilization reports, equipment inspection for damage and functionality, system downtime records and equipment performance measurements all help the auditor determine the state of IT equipment.

Business Procedures – All IT policies and procedures will  be documented and located at the IT data center. Documented procedures include: organization personnel job responsibilities, back up policies, security policies, employee termination policies, system operating procedures and an overview of operating systems.

Physical security – ePlus Systems auditor will  assess the security of the client premises. Physical security includes bodyguards, locked cages, man traps, single entrances, bolted down equipment, and computer monitoring systems. Additionally, environmental controls should be in place to ensure the security of organization (air conditioning units, raised floors, humidifiers and UPS).

Backup Procedures – ePlus Systems auditor will verify that the client has backup procedures in place in the case of system failure. Clients may maintain a backup data center at a separate location that allows them to instantaneously continue operations in the instance of system failure.
