Challenge
To begin with, our client is a multinational finance house with over 200 employees distributed worldwide. As a global financial institute, our client globally runs over 6 different real-time trading systems at any one time. These mission critical systems run non-stop 24 hours a day and 5 days a week.

Any incidental failure may cause our client a direct money loss impact.

Our client has the head office in Hong Kong and limited resources for I.T. personnel for oversea branches. Our role is to centralize their I.T. management in Hong Kong and introduce systematic I.T. governance throughout to all oversea branches.

Results
Throughout the process of I.T. Audit, our team has grasped the business goals and directions of our client on the fast expansions of businesses on overseas branches. An introduction of policies and guidelines was brought in order to centralize the monitoring and controls in coping for the new and further expansions of systems and network.

With the recent majorly publicized data leakage issues raised by the media, our client was highly concern and alerted. As one of the higher priority items, our audit team together with our technical professionals reviewed the existing infrastructure and network and ran a series of penetration tests in order to mitigate the possibility of data leakage.

A final management report was issued to our client upon our findings. Some highlights include findings on security precautions, firewall rules, I.T. procedures and handling along with specific recommendations such as an introduction of different policies, Document and Workflow Management System, Disaster Recovery Plan and Business Continuity Plan.
