Practical, Efficient Unix Auditing (with Scripts)

  • James Tarala
  • Wednesday, November 14th, 7:15pm - 8:15pm

Technical audits of Unix operating system controls can scare auditors - especially if the scope is a flavor of Unix that the auditor is not 100% comfortable with the operating system. But operating system audits are the bread and butter of most IS auditors. In most every technical audit that an IS auditor will perform there will be some level of inspection that's performed at the operating system level. Auditors therefore need the skills be able to audit the technical components of an operating system, whether they have a strong background in that operating environment or not. In this presentation James Tarala, a senior instructor with the SANS Institute, will provide a practical, step by step approach to auditing Unix operating systems. Not only will students receive a better understanding of the audit process for these technical controls, but they will walk out of the presentation with access to an audit script to assist them in their efforts!
