I am an IT consultant (I just started as a independent consultant), I am confident in my knowledge solving problems.
Can anybody recommend me a book or online paper about which are the step to follow when auditing a network? I have a new clients who wants me to solve the few problems that they have and also to do a report of things that could be improve. IT is a windows 2000/2003 network with several satellite offices, so I know that I should check router, AD sites configuration, etc, I know already things I would have to check but I am wondering is there is a book or paper that gives you an organize step by step of things to do when auditing a network… I could work on my own protocol of auditing a network but I would prefer to see if somebody has already done this.
Thank you very much
