Using your lab results, write a 2 page analysis that provides an assessment of security auditing methods found in the labs and the reading. You should identify a minimum of three methods as well as specifying what element the security auditing method relates to, such as detection of security violations, detection of misuse of resources, and creating an audit trail. For example, an audit might discover that one of the company’s firewall devices is not correctly configured, which makes that control useless. The mitigation action would be to reconfigure the firewall to comply with the company’s security policy.

Purpose
Security audits are an ongoing practice that periodically assesses the overall security of the network. All network assets must be identified, then the organization’s security policy must be reviewed. A security architecture review analyzes the specific controls and technologies that are currently in use. A risk assessment is also done to determine risks as well as their possible impact on the network. Other audits, such as firewall configuration and pen testing, should also be done to adequately determine the organization’s genuine security stance. The key to benefitting from security audits is to do them regularly in order to adapt to a rapidly changing security landscape.
Assignment Instructions
Create an analysis assessing a minimum of three security auditing methods discovered in your lab results and the reading. Feel free to include more methods in your analysis, but three should be the minimum. Be sure to note whether the security auditing method is specific to a physical on-premises component or a cloud/virtual component. Following your security auditing analysis, provide 2–3 pages of discussion that includes a description of the security auditing methods, how each of the methods relates to risk for the organization, and how each method mitigates that risk.
The minimum page count is 2–3 pages (excluding title page, etc.). If you require more pages to thoroughly discuss the identified methods, then include them. Your paper should use Times New Roman 12-point font, be double spaced, and use correct APA formatting (title page and reference page). Be sure to use proper APA in-text citations that match your reference list.
In accordance with the Academic Integrity Policy, your assignment will be automatically submitted to TurnItIn. The policy states that papers submitted for credit in any course should contain less than 25% non-original material, so avoid large sections of direct quotes and be sure that you use APA formatting to properly cite and reference all non-original material.
