Auditors and Evaluators

DISA released the CD-ROM "Information Assurance for Auditors and Evaluators," Version 1.04, in October 1998. Although a little out of date, the CD offers an interactive, multimedia tour of the basics of information assurance and computer crime. It also identifies for auditors what agencies and program offices should be doing to ensure that their enterprisewide systems are secure.

Users can click through the course at their own pace, starting with the fundamentals of computer crime and abuse to the basics of threats and vulnerabilities, available countermeasures, and how to determine risk and conduct risk assessments. Real-world cases are provided as examples to emphasize that the threats to systems are real. A quiz at the end of the course allows managers to monitor employee performance.
