- 72 % do not’t backup or do not held it off-site
- 79% of businesses don’t have a data recovery plan

What is a Security Audit?
Security audits is a tool to conduct a fair and measurable way to examine how secure organisational systems really are.
On the other hand, a computer security audit is a systematic, measurable technical assessment of how the organisation’s security policy is employed at a specific organisation. Computer security auditors work with the full knowledge of the organisation, at times with considerable inside information, in order to understand the resources to be audited.
Security audits do not take place in a vacuum; they are part of the on-going process of defining and maintaining effective security policies. This is not just a conference room activity. It involves everyone who uses any computer resources throughout the organisation.
