Welcome back to our weekly archive of audit checklists! We hope these weekly lists will help you as you build your personalized checklist for auditing your own organizations. We know that sometimes it can be difficult to research each of these topics, so hopefully these lists will help save you some time when you are researching your audit scope.

We decided to hit another hot topic this week, so we decided to talk about virtualization. I mean, when you’re not talking about cloud computing security over the family dinner table, you’re probably most likely talking about virtualization security and how it impacts your daily lives (Honey, can you install that new garbage disposal? Of course I can dear, but couldn’t we just virtualize it?). So we’re hoping that these audit checklists will help you as you’re evaluating the controls that protect these environments. You know you’re using them, might as well protect them!
