Security Analysis and Review

The security of any operating system can be greatly affected by how it is configured. PARSEC Group has the knowledge and experience necessary to configure your systems securely based on your needs, applications and compliancy regulations (HIPPA, Sarbanes-Oxley [SOX], etc.).

Security Analysis

PARSEC Group can perform a complete security audit of your IT systems and provide a detailed analysis of what actions can be done to improve the security, provide better auditing capabilities and decrease the effort required to maintain your systems. If a breach of security occurs, PARSEC Group can assist in the review of security data to help determine the extent of the breach and what measures to take to deter or prevent similar breaches in the future. Some topics covered by security audits include:

  • Having accountability of all users on the system

    • Check for accounts which are no longer being used
    • Check for improperly configured accounts

  • Review of password policy and enforcement

Security Review

Do you need an independent security review done on a weekly, monthly or quarterly basis? PARSEC Group can provide your company with a regularly scheduled, independent security review of your systems to verify that the security has not been tampered with in a manner that reduces the level of security or prevents proper reporting of security issues as they occur. This is important in those environments needing to follow mandated security audit procedures (HIPPA, Sarbanes-Oxley [SOX], etc.) for systems containing personal, medical and financial information.
