Being IT security sucks:

When you find out that you are up for a Business Controls 'Peer Review' (read 2 week audit). That's right, another audit. So, between end of February and Q3 we will have an IT Security Team audit in Vic (albeit that was a 'friendly' one), one in Montreal, one in Ottawa and now this Peer Review. It's enough to make a girl snap.
Who does she think she is?

What happens in these audits? Anything exciting?

Actually the security audits are pretty cool. The guys who check out our systems have written these amazing programs, both for monitoring the network and for hacking. It's always fun to watch them test systems(as long as they don't find anything). I spend so much of my time with process driven work that its a nice change.

As for this new audit - gawd no! Its a process and procedures audit, so tonnes and tonnes of paperwork and interviews and presentations and grilling. Plus the testing thrown on top.
