This week`s resource selections originate from a monthly internal audit column I write for Jim Kaplan, for going on more than three years now.
Each month in Jim’s internal audit newsletter (http://www.auditnet.org/) I highlight leading audit and security resources to assist auditors and security practitioners.
Have another great week.
