  Most of the viruses we've seen on our network in the last
couple of years walked in the door on laptops.  There are a
couple of measures which help mitigate this, including having 
a separate filtered subnet and/or deploying some kind of NAC
solution.

Subject: Malware and DoS analysis

Hello

I'm trying to analyse a company's vulnerability to malware 
(Viruses, Trojans, Backdoors, etc)  and DoS. I'm however a 
little bit stuck in finding an approach to do that. I'm 
trying to collect properties that make a corporate 
environment vulnerable to certain kinds of malware and DoS attacks.

Some of the points I want to have a closer look are:
-  Internet Access architecture
- Intranet and DMZ architecture
- General Network defences
- Anti-Virus deployment
- Deployed Operating Systems and their patch level
- Employees' awareness regarding malware
- Proper defence-in-depth concept

Do you guys have any other ideas? What can be considered to 
analyze DoS susceptibility?

Thanks for your feedbacks
Joe
