Auditing servers and desktops to ensure their ongoing compliance to an enterprise’s system security policy is rapidly becoming a requirement. Industry-specific regulations (e.g. Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, FISMA, GLBA, etc.), failed external audits and other mandated directives are compelling drivers that require an understanding of the problem and the deployment of a suitable solution. This presentation will demystify Audit and Compliance, and its role in system-level vulnerability management, and describe the essentials required for a comprehensive and effective Audit & Compliance solution.  It will cover the audit process, challenges, key considerations, alternatives, automation and reporting, and provide case studies.
