Towards achieving an ‘Iron Dome’!

Paramount’s independent security audits are designed to access compliance, manage and mitigate IT risk at all levels, apply best practices, plan for different eventualities, test preparedness, monitor evolving scenarios and accurately anticipate risks. As the forerunner in Cybersecurity solutions in the Middle East, we bring comprehensive technical expertise, laser focus and deep insight to whatever we do.

What is a Security Audit?

A security audit is defined as a thorough and methodical assessment of an enterprise’s information system by evaluating to what extent the enterprise adapts and complies with the criteria established. The scope of security audits typically includes an assessment of physical and environmental security, user management practices, compliance to policies and procedures, Cybersecurity controls, IT operational processes, IT continuity strategy and implementation, IT staff and employees’ knowledge on security, amongst other aspects.

Security audits are extremely important because they give a holistic view of the security posture of an enterprise from an independent stand point. A thorough security audit ensures that information at any level is protected from breach at all times.
