"Excellent program. Best training I have had in a while."
-IT Audit Manager, TCF Bank

In this five-day seminar, we will focus on ESX and Hyper-V security. You will start with virtualization basics, hardware virtualization considerations, and different versions of ESX. We will examine best practices for securing ESX servers, access to the management console, ESX logging and other configuration issues to ensure ESX virtual server hosts are secure and stable. We will then review Hyper-V and best practices for securing a Hyper-V environment. Finally, we will tie all of these concepts together with a formulation of a suggested audit program of ESX/Hyper-V and the virtual server environment. Case studies using a combination of live demonstrations and exercises will reinforce important virtualization concepts and associated audit points addressed in real audit projects.

Prerequisites: A working knowledge of operating system security, networking concepts, and associated logical access controls, Network Security Essentials (ASG203), Intermediate Audit School (ITG241), or equivalent experience.
Advance Preparation: None         
Learning Level: Intermediate
Delivery Method: Group-Live         
Field: Auditing
