Information Technology Risk Review

IT risk management is an increasingly crucial element for any modern business and is closely associated with improved business performance, innovation and productivity.

Shackleton’s IT Risk Review is a systematic, technical assessment of your IT network and systems. This involves computers, servers, network routers, wireless access points, switches, and firewalls. It also involves the identification of hardware and software applications used across your business. The review allows our engineers to identify any impending threats, areas of risk, or ideas where improvements might be made.

Analysis of your IT systems and infrastructure is essential to the process of delivering effective IT support. It is a huge aid when buying and implementing new IT products and developing mid-to-long-term business IT strategies.

Analysis of your IT systems and infrastructure is essential to the process of delivering effective IT support. It is a huge aid when buying and implementing new IT products and developing mid-to-long-term business IT strategies.

Typical areas of risk include:

 System related information, such as:

  • Hardware - Is it capable of doing what is asked of it? Is it fit for purpose? How old is it?
  • Software – Is it up to date? Are updates and security patches applied and managed regularly?
  • Data – Business data is your lifeblood. Where is it kept? How is it backed up? How recoverable is it? What impact would it have on the business if it can’t be recovered quickly?

Today’s businesses face several common risk factors; natural threats such as lightning strikes and earthquakes; human threats such as inadvertent data entry, deletion, or even theft; environmental threats, such as long-term power failure, fire, or flood.

Shackleton Technologies will manage the IT risk management process from start to finish and help protect your business from known and discovered vulnerabilities.
