System Audits to Safeguard Your Operations

    Scope Drafting and SOW Finalisation 

    Threatsys begins by drafting a detailed Scope of Work (SOW) for the SEBI Cyber Resilience and System Audit. We review the latest SEBI circulars to ensure all guidelines are met. Our team compiles all relevant information and stakeholder requirements into a comprehensive, well-documented scope. This scope outlines the boundaries and applicability of the audit, addressing specific pain points and organizational needs. It encompasses the work systems, number of departments, and locations involved, ensuring a thorough and targeted audit process.

    Creating the SEBI Audit Roadmap and Plan

    Following the definition of the scope, objectives, and criteria, Threatsys collaborates with board members and certified auditors to draft a detailed audit plan. This plan specifies the nature, timing, and extent of control tests and substantive procedures. Additionally, we thoroughly examine network security measures in accordance with the SEBI Circular checklist, ensuring comprehensive coverage and adherence to regulatory requirements. This phase is crucial for streamlining the audit process and ensuring all security aspects are meticulously evaluated.

    Finalizing the SEBI GAP Assessment and Audit

    Once the audit scope and boundaries are established, Threatsys develops a detailed audit schedule, approved by both parties. This schedule outlines a clear timeline, indicating which departments will be audited and when. A thorough GAP Assessment, adhering to SEBI norms, is conducted with each department, involving all relevant stakeholders in the review meetings. This ensures all discrepancies are identified and addressed systematically, paving the way for a comprehensive and effective audit process.
