Security assessments are carried out by individuals who are unclear as to the quality of the security measures put in place on their IT systems and networks. The benefits to a secure network are many, but include the security measure’s ability to protect user confidentiality, sensitive data, system resources, and much more. Security Assessments are usually done on a monthly or even weekly basis in some cases. These are done to make sure the website or web-based program is still in compliance with passing security requirements to meet PCI DSS or your web admin and industry standard compliance.
