We begin working on the research phase of the audit once this access has been granted and we have an initial discovery conference call discussing the issues you’re currently facing and also what you’d like to get out of the audit.

We usually deliver the audit within 2-3 weeks. Once we deliver the audit, we then have a conference call to discuss the findings and answer any questions you have around the areas covered. The audit also includes with a list of all of the issues raised and the complexity of the efforts required to fix them.
