Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I’m curious – if you don’t know which questions to ask, how are you competent to do the actual work?

    I'll add to that. Jcpole hit the nail on the head. I'll continue driving it. You have not specified any sort of companyor industry. You've specifically stated that you don't know what's acceptable. If you don't know THEIR aims for security, how on earth would we know, other than in a general sense? This reminds me of people who have asked me to help them "learn" network security, but when faced with having to actually work at things to learn the details suddenly lost interest. There is NO magic formula for network security, and more to the point, even if you were to ask the "right" questions, and provide "right" answers/proposals, without formal committment, and understanding of what they are getting into, the end result would at best look pretty and provide a false sense of security. I do not claim to be the best in my field, or "right" on everything. But all recommendations I make are based on years of experience, and will produce an measureable improvement, without causing harm, wasting people's time & money, and without providing a false sense of security. Please do not harm the reputation of the security community by jumping in ill-prepared. If you think I'm being harsh in reply to you, I assure you that the comments we (those of us experienced in this business) make to each other behind your back are far harsher than anything we say publicly. But we enjoy being part of this forum and don't want to be kicked out for expressing our true opinions in appropriate language. Bob
