Preparing for the Compliance Audit


“The IT auditors will be here next month.” Those are words that no data professional wants to hear. We will have endless questions to answer and queries to process. Yet legal regulations and contractual obligations often require us to prove that we have robust systems and documented processes in place that protect our data and secure our applications.

Join Kevin Kline, SentryOne principal program manager, and Joe Webb, lead partner of the SERO Group, as they walk you through the process of an audit. Learn how to more effectively work with your internal auditors to prepare for an upcoming audit. The webinar will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • What does a typical internal audit look like from a DBA’s point of view?
  • What are the most common information requests that auditors have for DBAs?
  • What are some methods to mitigate the risk of known issues in your applications and databases?
  • What products and scripts can help you prepare for and accelerate an audit?

Audits can be very scary and quite disruptive. But once you’ve learned the lessons presented in this webinar, you’ll have a much better idea of what to expect from your auditor and have the means to quickly, efficiently, and successfully complete your portion of an audit.
