Risk, Threat, and Vulnerability Management

 

Many companies and agencies conduct IT audits to test and assess the rigor of IT
security controls in order to mitigate risks to IT networks. Such audits meet compliance
mandates by regulatory organizations- Federal IT systems follow Federal Information
System Management Act (FISMA) guidelines and report security compliance to US-
CERT, the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team, which handles
defense and response to cyberattaclos as part of the Department of Homeland
Security. In addition, the Control Objective for Information Technology (COBIT) is a set
of IT security guidelines that provides a framework for IT security for IT systems in the
commercial sector-

These audits are comprehensive and rigorous, and negative findings can lead to
significant fines and other penalties. Therefore, industry and federal entities conduct
internal self-audits in preparation for actual external IT audits, and compile security
assessment reports.
