As part of an IT audit, what would/should you focus on in terms of group policies applied to computers and servers. I'm just not sure what you could really focus on, or what common issues there would be - and what tools you could look to to assist in identifying any problems/risks in the group policies being deployed?

What type of Audit are we talking about?  A compliance audit, a voluntary audit, a perspective client site assessment?

I've never seen a voluntary audit or site assessment really touch on GPO's.  I've worked with many different clients and they each have specific things they want, but most just have GPO's to map drives, map printers, and disabled Windows Firewall.

Your main defenses against issues should be corporate antivirus, hardware firewall, strong file share permissions, and good backups.
