At ECO Safetech we not only identify potential weaknesses and vulnerabilities but also highlight inefficiencies and wastage.
Over engineered solutions are expensive to install and to maintain. Our audits are designed to evaluate the current systems and processes as well as identifying the best solutions for the client’s needs. As we don’t sell systems our audits are as likely to result in client savings as they are in recommending additional expenditure. Getting more from less is often achievable. Many companies will do a security audit at least once or twice a year. But they can also be done monthly or quarterly. Different departments may have different audit schedules, depending on the systems, applications and data they use. Routine audits — whether done annually or monthly — can help identify anomalies or patterns in a system.
ECO Safetech Security Audits,Review and Inspection covers the range of security implementation including both human and technical resources. Resultant recommendations will cover suggested enhancements to staffing levels, skills training and equipment levels.
