Most networks today have equipment that has been working for a long time and in many cases there are security problems, which can be mitigated by applying patches, software updates or applying external solutions to avoid risks, therefore, it is very important to make an annual plan for risk assessment, including the corresponding network audits.
After performing the audits and minimizing the security risks, it is recommended to have a contingency and attack mitigation plan.
Networks operate every day exposing themselves to possible external and internal attacks. Network audits are a useful to protect resources and information. The most important objective of a Network Audit is to detect possible risk points and make the necessary improvements to eliminate these vulnerable points.
