Where can I find a sample security audit report? How can I run my own?

IT organization security audit reports aren't for circulation. Our network enterprise security expert explains how professionals can sample a technical report by running their own.

Can I see some of a security audit report? I especially would like to see a technical report.
Well, I guess that comes down to what you are really asking. If you are asking if you can see your company's, they may be somewhat sensitive about who gets to see this listing. It is most likely distributed on a need-to-know basis. If you would like to know what this type of technical report is, the best way is to run your own assessment tool against your home network.

One such tool you can check out is Nessus.
