Ensure that the CIO is easily available by phone for conformation during the
audit. The intelligent integrator will assume that the letter is just a social
engineering attempt, and you don't want to be detained for a few hours until the
CIO is out of a meeting.
Quoting "Gallicchio, Florindo (2007)" <florindo.gallicchio () ESAVIO COM>:
In other words, the contract itself has the legal wording that gives us
permission to do the security assessment, and we get a separate document
our auditors to carry with them when they're doing the social
engineering/physical penetration test portion. A clearly written
authorization letter from the client's CIO does the trick.
