An IT health check represents an essential way of evaluating your business’ inner IT workings to ensure that there are no security breaches or potential problems which are waiting in the wings. As well as ensuring that systems are properly set up, an IT health check also helps to guard against the expense of lost productivity and company downtime and ensures adequate protection can be put in place against any possibility of unauthorised entry.
An IT Health Check audits the company’s entire IT set up, seeking out any potential vulnerabilities or issues so that risks can be rapidly identified and a plan put in place to rectify the situation as quickly as possible. This health check ensures that best practices are being followed across your company’s computer systems and that processes are being consistently followed to ensure proper IT usage, stability and function.
An IT Health Check gives you assurance that the company’s external systems have been fully protected from any unauthorised changes or access and that there is no possibility of unauthorised entry into the system. It will also offer reassurance that there are no weaknesses on the network’s infrastructure or on any individual systems which could allow any internal device to unintentionally or intentionally have an impact on any of the other devices’ security.
Any IT Health Check should cover the following elements:
A report will be produced following the IT Health Check which summarises the number of issues detected as well as their type and how severe they are. All vulnerabilities will be properly identified as well as explained and a solution to remedy the problem should also be indicated so that companies can put rectification measures in place as quickly as possible in order to mitigate their risks.
By having regular IT Health Checks, it’s possible to spot any possible issues before they cause serious problems and so better protect your company from fraud, scams and cyber crime – something which is ever-more important in today’s increasingly digital age.
