In this work program sample, we outline general best-practice steps for the intellectual property network audit process.
Sample steps include: identify DNS servers managed by the company, determine if the operating system contains the latest patch/update, determine if the internal and external DNS servers are redundant and on different networks, identify the system available for the DNS servers, determine if the DNS administrator subscribes to industry and vendor updates, determine if all servers and network devices are time synchronized across the company network, and determine if the outside-facing time devices are redundant.
