It takes a company an average of 35 days to detect when they have been compromised. For some, it can take years. As fast as software changes and new vulnerabilities are discovered, waiting for an annual penetration test is just not enough. In this talk, I will show you how we perform self-audits on our own network on a continual basis. You will learn about the tools that we use so that you can audit your own network to determine if your technical and physical controls will detect a security incident. I will show you how our self-audits and 'fire drills' engage our IT team, allowing us to learn both how to detect when an incident is occurring and how to react. I will also share some mistakes I've made and give you tips on performing a self-assessment without disrupting your business. You will see how this has strengthened our awareness education and our overall security posture. If you've never performed a self-audit this talk will be a great introduction. It's okay to touch your...network.
