The aim of the external security assessment is to survey and collate information that is most important to your information security structure (physical, logical and organisational). By base lining your controls against various information security standards such as ISO 27001, PCI DSS, COBiT, ISF etc. we present a report that combines all the different attributes of the varying standards to give you a complete oversight of your information security posture.


The exercise takes 4 days and is structured along the following key pillars: 

  • - People (Roles)
  • - Information (Uses)
  • - Property (Uses)
  • - Systems (information processing & storage and physical & environmental security)


The outcome of the external security assessment is that Sysnet aim to have a rapid oversight of your current documentation including relevant policies and procedures and observable, potential areas of interest through a walk round. Coupled with short interviews of key security staff and senior stakeholders, Sysnet can obtain an understanding of information security as it applies to your business in order to ensure that you current security controls are able to withstand and defend against any information security threat.
