Summary: The talk will explain the difficulty in conducting security audits in organizations, specifically enterprises whose services and networks span multiple domains/boundaries, use cloud and on-premises services, and are hosted across several geographies. This will include using our proposed conceptual security audit framework to show how organizations can conduct appropriate security audits. Further, it will provide insights to the essential requirements necessary for efficient security audits, and including types of security audits, things to consider before conducting a security audit, general guidelines in performing security audits, and audit trail analysis. This talk should be suitable to both business executives and technical audiences, including CEOs, CISOs, Administrators, Information Technology, Software Engineering and Architecture stakeholders.
