IT Assessment

Technology allows us to be innovative and dynamic in business.  For most successful businesses, technology has played a critical role in their growth.  Unfortunately, if left unmonitored, technology can also be a company's biggest downfall.  As business advisors, we want to ensure that this isn't the case for our clients.  Therefore, CTBK and Lighthouse Technology Services ("LHTS") have collaborated to offer our clients a Technology Risk Assessment and Compliance Testing service.  The assessment covers:

Hardware

  • Servers, workstations, printers, non-AD devices (that is to say: switches, routers, etc.)
  • Old computers still joined to the domain that have not been removed

Software

  • Systems with missing patches, service packs, or, especially, security updates
  • Local accounts (per-system) with weak or insecure passwords
  • Moreover, systems missing anti-virus/anti-spyware or firewall misconfiguration

Configuration

  • Security policy inconsistency across network servers/computers
  • Outbound system access that should be blocked
  • Also, lack of content filtering (social media, entertainment, pornography, illegal downloads)

Accessibility

  • Misconfiguration of user access to network shares
  • Detailed breakdown of AD security group membership

Security Risks

  • Old user accounts which still have access and have not been properly disabled
  • Internal systems with open ports that pose a potential security risk
  • Finally, External issues that put your network at risk of business disruption or data loss
