So it’s exciting when a new one is launched that shows promise.
Check out risk3sixty, which aims to provide IT audit info for the layman or manager who doesn’t work hand-in-hand with IT systems on a daily basis.
One of the blog’s first posts laments that the author “can’t find a single I.T. Audit blog I find helpful”. It includes a screenshot of a Google search of IT audit blogs, a screenshot that made me chuckle.
The second blog listed is yours truly — see the post and graphic here.
(Actually, as blair151 pointed out below, the first listing is a paid ad, so I’m really first. Thanks for the keen eye, my friend.)
I’ll admit that my blog isn’t a pure IT audit blog. It includes my audit and security adventures, some opinions and rants, skkyler’s ACL fodder, and my pimpled humor. But I still made the risk3sixty blogroll, so I’ll take that as a compliment.
I also chuckled at the Google screenshot because my Audit Monkey friend’s blog is listed 5th, and he’s no IT auditor, which proves risk3sixty’s point. However, AM has a unique UK auditor perspective, so visit him once in a while.
And of course skkyler chuckled cuz the ACL blog is listed 6th in the screenshot.
Back to risk3sixty
Here’s a sample of the posts you’ll find on the risk3sixty blog:
- Analysis of Strong VS Weak Passwords
- Online Voting and IT Security
- Can I Use a Screenshot as Audit Evidence?
- What is a Stateful Firewall
I’m sure more good posts are on the way, so check out the blog’s bearded IT auditors, and leave them some encouraging comments.
The neighborhood just got better…
