Systems and financial statement auditors are often responsible for evaluating compliance with system security controls as part of their annual audit procedures. This assignment provides a practical learning experience that relates your course material to actual tasks practitioners perform. You are provided with simulated data from a realistic company example and are asked practitioner‐relevant questions covering a variety of issues related to network operating system access. Monitoring and limiting network operating system access and mitigating the related risk is crucial since any application (including accounting applications) can be accessed, and potentially compromised, through the network operating system.
