It’s always recommended that a third party conduct your information security audit. Having an unbiased opinion ensures that your systems are audited honestly and with integrity.
Compliance-related inspections rely on frequent inspections, especially in healthcare and customer service facing fields where client information is stored, accessed, and used as part of your day-to-day business.
Preparing for these audits through IT asset management can guarantee that your systems are functioning as efficiently as they should and that your business can pass an inspection.
