What is a website security audit?
A website security audit is a comprehensive evaluation of your website to identify potential vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could be exploited by hackers.
How long does a security audit take?
The duration of an audit varies based on the size and complexity of your website. Typically, smaller sites can be audited in a few days, while larger, more complex sites might take weeks.
Will the audit affect my website’s performance or downtime?
No, my security audit is designed to be non-intrusive. I use tools and methodologies that ensure your website remains operational and users experience no disruptions.
What tools do you use for the audit?
I utilize a combination of industry-leading tools and manual analysis to ensure a thorough and accurate audit. A full list of tools and methodologies may be disclosed prior to beginning any audit per request.
What will I receive at the end of the audit?
At the end of the audit, you’ll receive a detailed findings report that outlines potential vulnerabilities, their severity, and recommended remediation steps.
How often should I get my website audited?
Given the rapidly evolving nature of cyber threats, I recommend an annual security audit at a minimum. However, if you make significant changes to your website or integrate new technologies, it’s advisable to conduct an audit sooner.
Are the audits compliant with industry regulations?
This depends on your industry. I don’t offer any certificates or documentation to certify compliance with any regulation. But if your industry has specific requirements for compliance, I can help audit and provide recommendations to get there.
What if I don’t understand the technical details in the report?
Don’t worry! Part of my service includes a consultation where I explain the findings in plain language and help you understand the implications and recommended actions.
Do you offer ongoing monitoring after the audit?
No, but I provide solutions to self-monitor. My goal is to ensure you have all the tools necessary to keep your site secure. I don’t like to own any tools for my clients, instead I help clients get setup for success and grant me access so that I can help from a distance.
How do I know if my website needs a security audit?
Every website, regardless of its size or function, can benefit from a security audit. However, If you collect user data, process payments, or simply want to ensure the trustworthiness of your online presence, an audit is essential.
How much does a security audit cost?
The cost varies based on the scope and complexity of the audit. Please get in touch with me for a tailored quote.
Do you offer remediation services for the vulnerabilities found?
Yes, I provide a range of services to address and fix the vulnerabilities I identify during the audit.
