There are few certainties in this life: death, taxes, and security audits. There’s a good chance that at some point in your career, you’ll have to face the dreaded auditor. Our goal with this month’s mission is to quiz your compliance knowledge so you can ask yourself if you have the expertise to survive an audit. Each week will highlight a different aspect of compliance as follows:
- Week 1: Understanding Compliance
- Week 2: The Industry Perspective
- Week 3: Risks to Compliance and Risks of Non-compliance
- Week 4: Tools for Compliance in IT
Audits shouldn’t feel like IT Pro Vs. Auditor, SolarWinds is here to help.
