I am hoping to get some expert opinion on this one. I am interested in knowing the best practices for performing a security audit for our network in terms of outside users accessing internal resources. I have a Cisco firewall in place, and have one single point of entry into the network from the outside, but I feel a certain amount of paranoia over network attacks. Any advice would be helpful in performing my own network security tests from the outside. Thanks for the help.

For starters, you could go to: https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2

It's a nice basic scan that I use a lot. It should take away the worst of your paranoia (or not ;).
