Hi Michael,

I typically refer to the following document from the SANS Policy resources:

http://www.sans.org/resources/policies/Audit_Policy.doc

I modify this for internal permission slip purposes (i.e. the network security group has permission to do X, Y, Z on the network) and for external engagements as well.

I'd be very interested in hearing people's thoughts/comments.

Thank You,

Paul

Would anyone care to share, comment, etc.?  Thanks in advance.
