Thinking outside the checkbox – why passing audits won't keep you safe!

This talk will provide a number of examples/lessons learnt from previous experiences in conducting information security assessments, ISMS certifications and penetration tests. The talk aims to highlight to the IT teams that simply passing audits won't keep your organisation safe, as well as providing some insights and practical advice to auditors when it comes to Information Security – think outside the checkbox!
