Bounce Back - Pacific Asia Travel Association Thailand Chapter

While a security audit should address all the issues above, the audit requires

several elements. It should include an assessment of the current situation

and procedures, person or persons responsible for this category of security,

suggestions for enhancements, and updates, and a timetable for these to

occur. In essence, a security audit works like a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses,

Opportunities and Threats) analysis. Some areas of security may require specialist

attention. This would apply to computer and IT security in which the nature of

threats is subject to daily changes.
