Initially as an IT auditor my focus during client assessments was to examine documented evidence of security control implementation. This did not allow me the opportunity to have hands on experience with the technical testing of security controls that were also being assessed. The CyberGuider team provided mentor-ship and insight into the hands on technical testing (i.e. pen testing) process that was also being conducted during my assessments. This not only included how technical testing was being implemented; but also what technical testers were looking for along with the tools and strategies being utilized (i.e. NMAP, network scanners, vulnerability scanners, web application testing, etc.). Knowing and understanding the information provided by CyberGuider gave me the additional confidence, knowledge and tangible skills needed to become a successful IT auditor team lead and a valuable asset to my organization.
