Digital Risk Protection (DRP) audits in general, and identity and permissions audits in particular, have become mission-critical for both corporate regulatory compliance and cybersecurity.
Shining a light on the unknowns of audits
Even though audits are a necessary business activity, most business leaders worry about them. This is natural. It’s natural to worry, since the penalties for noncompliance can be severe. It’s also natural to worry about audits because there are so many unknowns.
What problems will auditors find? How severe will those problems be? How difficult will remediation be? And what if auditors miss something important that could hurt us in the future?
Competent auditing firms can discuss the tools and methods they use to counter those worries. Another unknown is more difficult to stop worrying about: cost.
The high cost of DRP audits
It’s no secret that audits are time-consuming and expensive. DRP audits are even more so. For years, traditional auditing firms have relied on reassigned (and overworked) IT workers to perform DRP audits and to craft reports.
This is problematic for a number of reasons, including the fact that it stretches already thin IT resources beyond the breaking point. This approach is also a costly one, relying on well-paid specialists. . . well-paid specialists who are performing tasks that fall outside of their typical routines and comfort zones.
