The boss asked me to document some server automation processes related to lockdown/hardening for a response to a recent audit inquiry. He was very pleasantly surprised when I told him, “Already done. In fact, more than 2 years ago….but it’s twenty-five pages long.” :)
A quick OneNote search turned up the document and all 25 pages were printed in under 10 minutes.
Of course, since the data in the document is 2 years old I’ll have to brush it up a bit and include some of the changes we’ve made recently, but I’m very happy with my ability to anticipate audit requirements so far in advance of their request. :)
