Experts,

I am interested on what parts of your network infrastructure you test for security issues and misconfigurations etc and how often?

We are trying to develop a similar testing regime in our organisation and it would be great to see how frequent you test certains parts of your network, what you prioritize etc as higher risk areas that need greater revieweing etc

Cheers,
