Hi All,

Thanks to everyone who as responded so far. Some great suggestions. To give you all a little more information about 
what I am after ...

I'm a full time pen tester but have been given a week to perform a "Security Review" (not a Pen Test, but not excluding a Pen Test!). What makes up the Security Review hasn't been defined to the client, and we currently don't have a framework to go by.
Therefore, I have been given the job of determining what the "Security Review" should entail, given the time 
constraints of 5 business days. Currently I am not sure what type of systems the client has.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.


A security review, imo, is finding out what steps have been taken to prevent data loss.

Don't forget to also check the security of the backup media ie who has access and if an unauthorised person got hold of it would the data still be safe?
