Every organization has implemented virtualization technologies due to the massive cost, efficiency, and redundancy benefits provided by this technology. However, the addition of virtualization adds a level of complexity to the validation of the controls. In this session we will discuss what is virtualization, how does it benefit the organization, what are the controls we would typically see in a virtualized environment, and how can we validate the different levels of logical access controls that can be implemented and should be checked.

At this session, attendees can expect to:

  • Gain a basic understanding of Virtualization technologies including the benefits and advantages of implemented virtualization.
  • Explore impacts and benefits of virtualization on business continuity, development and testing efforts of the organization.
  • Review resource sharing metrics that should be evaluated and monitored
  • Examine logical security controls standard to virtualization environments and how those controls should be evaluated and monitored.

  • Technology Auditors
  • Audit Staff
  • Managers
  • Executives
  • Independent Audit Professionals
