Get Your IT Audit from a Company Who Knows Technology

It’s important to get an impartial third-party assessment on your IT systems, just as you would a financial audit. Even companies with the best intentions can develop blind spots in processes and policies they’ve developed themselves. Besides, IT is moving so fast these days, you need an IT audit by a company who is familiar with the newest technologies, not to mention the newest threats to your data.

That’s where Halton PC can help you. We’ve helped businesses and organizations with their networks and IT systems since 2009. We’ve seen it all, from outdated hardware and software to the latest ransomware and phishing tactics. Our IT audit of your systems will be thorough and comprehensive so you know exactly where the risks are.

An IT Audit Helps Keep Your Data Safe

An IT audit is the easy way to find how safe your data is. It’s a question you don’t want answered the hard way.


Business, non-profits, government agencies, and other organizations are become more and more reliant on IT systems. Cloud services, social media, electronic communications (including texts, emails, and VoIP), social media, software as a service, and many other pieces of software and hardware that have the potential to negatively affect our data and how we use it.


Too many companies lose too much valuable data because of vulnerabilities to these systems and poorly backed up data. That leads to real costs including:

* Costs associated with trying to restore or recapture the data

* Costs associated with a forensic audit (much more costly than an IT audit)

* Business disruption

* Notification costs (costs associated with notifying your customers about the breach)

* Possible fines

* Lost customers

* Lost future business

* Lost reputation

* Direct financial loss due to stolen financial information


Yahoo’s famous security breaches of up to 1.5 billion accounts cost the company a reported $350 million. The dangers – and the costs – are all too real. Small businesses in the GTA may not be facing those kinds of losses, but the real costs can still be crippling. A 2017 IBM study found that the average costs related to lost or stolen confidential information totaled $141 per record. Multiply that by the number of customer/client records you have, and you’ll have a pretty good idea of the average costs you’re looking at.


The cost of identifying and fixing holes in your system is much, much less in terms of both money and reputation. Even if you don’t handle sensitive customer data, your own data can be valuable. You want to ensure it’s locked up tight from unauthorized users, and readily available to those who need it.

That’s why it just makes sense to get an IT audit report from a reputable source. Halton PC will find out where the holes are and give you recommendations for fixing them.
