IT security audits should be conducted constantly and adjusted to the slightest alterations in your company’s IT infrastructure — and that’s what we at BC Team are ready to offer.
An IT security audit is a comprehensive analysis of the IT security of your business. Its goal is to locate weak links in your data security systems, as well as to reveal high-risk practices and offer solutions to bolstering your overall data protection measures.
Cybersecurity audits are never limited to mere software and span all facets of your company’s data protection practices.

How BC Team runs your security audit:
Audits are a lot to keep in mind — that’s why they’re best entrusted to someone with proven expertise in the field. At BC Team, we take on the full range of security assessment measures.
We take it in steps, including:
Defining goals: together with you, we define what areas of your IT systems will be covered and what insights are expected.
Defining the scope: depending on the set goals, we prepare a list of all data, assets, and information systems that need assessment.
Running the audit: we examine every facet of all assets and systems that need attention and identify all the weak spots and potential threats.
Making the best of the results: using our findings, we create a complete snapshot of your security posture as well as an improvement plan that you can use to strengthen your data protection, as well as for future audits.
We make every step interactive and provide extensive feedback on our audit findings at every turn. You can be sure you’ll get the broadest picture of the efficiency of your data security policies before and after the audit.

The thing about smart contracts is that once it’s out there, it’s out there. We help you examine every facet of your smart contract integrity and discover any weaknesses and potential loopholes. We make blockchain immutability work for you, not against you.
