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

I have not registered - its free registration - but maybe worth a look to help you come up with a testing regime

Cheers,

Hi,

Usually you need to audit the firewall, routers, switch , IDP, configurations for security at network layer. Nipper is a handy utility to audit the network devices configuration files.
