Enhance your information governance through rigorous auditing

A robust information governance program requires continuous improvement, as policies and controls can be forgotten if not regularly checked. Supplementing policies and technical controls with security audits provide constant scrutiny, minimises potential security risks, and ensures that your organisation is equipped to respond to security incidents effectively.

However, the audits should be conducted by skilled and knowledgeable individuals to be effective. An independent auditor, not involved in daily operations, is also essential but can be challenging to achieve in most organisations.

A tailored IT audit service for compliance and continuous improvement

At RightCue, our IT audit services are conducted by auditors with professional qualifications such as CISA, CISM, and CISSP and years of industry experience covering heavily regulated sectors such as defence, finance, insurance, pharmaceuticals, as well as client-driven sectors like software development, legal, education, and marketing.

Our experts bring specialised knowledge and insights into emerging threats and industry best practices, which you can leverage to enhance your security program. We also have extensive knowledge of various cloud infrastructures, ERP systems, and other complex systems.

We tailor our services to your business requirements, industry sector, and clients’ needs. We supplement your existing certifications like ISO 27001, CSA Star, and SOC2, and we can include compliance aspects important to you, such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, HITRUST, FedRAMP, GDPR, CIS Controls, and more.

Our auditors can be rotated to provide you with a fresh perspective and wide-ranging expertise every time. Our objective is not just to find gaps but also to suggest practical solutions and improvements, as well as train your staff in industry best practices. With the constantly changing regulatory and threat landscape, our internal audit program offers your team another avenue to stay updated on changes.

As with all our services, our audit approach focuses on clarity, continuous value and trusted relationships.
