Industry - Credit Rating


Information is the most important asset for any organization that wishes to maintain a competitive edge over its rivals. An efficient management system to secure the organization's information becomes imperative and highly challenging.

To meet that end, Sequretek conducted the Internal Audit to validate the effectiveness of the client’s ISMS in achieving its security objectives. As in any large organization, there are multiple layers of hierarchy, making it challenging to determine gaps arising out of process and technology interdependencies creating vulnerabilities in the ISMS.


To help the organization in achieving its ISMS initiatives, Sequretek conducted a biannual audit of all the important processes and technologies. All audits were conducted keeping in mind the organizations policies and the requirements of the ISO27001:2013 Standard.

The findings were reported and a thorough root cause and corrective actions determined for any fault in the ISMS implemented. A date was decided to ensure timely closure of the exposed risk based on the formulated corrective action. All reports of the audits are maintained for future reference, to be used during internal/extenal audits.
