Risks & Recommendations Audit

You can’t improve until you know what you have!

Demystifying your IT infrastructure

Over time, your IT infrastructure will change. Equipment and software will reach end-of-life and once capable systems will start to struggle under the weight of escalating demand. It’s hard to keep track of what needs updating, when.

If you’re new in post or are worried that something potentially dangerous is lurking in your infrastructure, the answer is to run a thorough IT audit. Typically, we recommend a full audit every 2 years although this depends on the scale and complexity of your infrastructure.
