ELECT's Technology and Security Assessment Services
Why an Assessment?
Whether your company is seeking to add a new technology, resolve operational issues, understand your security position for compliance purposes or simply wants to gain a clearer understanding of the condition of your technology operations and processes, a full technology assessment from Elect IT Solutions is a critical first step in obtaining the information and visibility that is needed to move forward in the most strategic and appropriate manner. So many organizations attempt to forge ahead without truly knowing their current IT capacity or capabilities and as a result, many organizations waste valuable IT and corporate dollars trying to get to a destination without understanding their starting point. Additionally, we have also seen the trend of hackers and identity thefts targeting small-medium businesses, because like large organizations they have sensitive and personally identifiable information, but typically lack the resources and time to properly secure their systems.
The Value of Elect's Technology & Security Assessment
What our technology & security assessment brings is the power of knowledge and information. When these are obtained, a deeper understanding of what you have, where you are, and how to get to where you want can be determined. In essence the assessment becomes the point of discovery that leads to the building of a strategic technology roadmap for your organization.
When completed, Elect's technology assessment produces a comprehensive report of our findings on the the health, security and condition of your IT systems and processes, as well as recommendations for potential areas of improvement. Our actionable recommendations will assist you in aligning technology to your business goals and objectives, while also providing the direction to stabilize, secure and strengthen your IT environment. It is our mission to provide the information in a manner that is productive for business stakeholders, executive managment, and IT staff so that all can share in the proper visioning and strategy for IT.
