Improve Security with an IT Gap Analysis

A gap analysis is a highly valuable tool for determining whether your IT security technology, processes and protocols are meeting performance expectations. A gap analysis essentially identifies the differences between where you are and where you want to be when it comes to securing your organization against a wide array of threats and risks.


Armed with results of a superior gap analysis, you can prioritize investments and efforts as you work to increase security and improve governance risk management and compliance processes. A gap analysis can help to identify areas vulnerable to attack, problems with compliance, issues with security policy, flaws in security technology, and much more.
