Book Review: IT Auditing by Davis, Schiller & Wheeler

This book is an interesting read, especially if your organization is concerned with SOX, GLBA or other regulations. It is written in the Hacking Exposed series style and features excellent examples and a user friendly layout.

Detailed examples of how to audit systems, applications and policies lie inside. From the basics of the audit process and function to command-line details, it’s all here. All the layers of the IT department are covered, in deep enough detail to be useful.

If you are new to IT auditing, this could become your handbook. If you have been around the block a few times, it is still likely you will find something new inside. Published by McGraw Hill and Osborne, the book is well worth the $59.99 cover price. It should do fine for a fireside read.
