Separate resource OUs by department and in some cases by location Portable computers Windows Vista and Windows 7 Separate portable computer OUs by department and in some cases by location Web servers WebSrv OU Regulatory requirements Many industries and locales have strict and specific requirements for network operations and how resources are protected.
In the health care and financial industries, for example, there are strict guidelines for who has access to records and how they are used. Many countries have strict privacy rules.
To identify regulatory Organizational audit, work with your organization's legal department and other departments responsible for these requirements. Then consider the security configuration and auditing options that can be used to comply with and verify compliance with these regulations.
Mapping the security audit policy to groups of users, computers, and resources in your organization By using Group Policy, you can apply your security audit policy to defined groups of users, computers, and resources.
To map a security auditing policy to these defined groups in your organization, you should understand the following considerations for using Group Policy to apply security audit policy settings: The policy settings you identify can be applied by using one or more GPOs.
For every policy setting that you select, you need to decide whether it should be enforced across the organization, or whether it should apply only to selected users or computers.
You can then combine these audit policy settings into GPOs and link them to the appropriate Active Directory containers. However, a GPO that is linked at a lower level can overwrite inherited policies. For example, you might use a domain GPO to assign an organization-wide group of audit settings, but want a certain OU to get a defined group of additional settings.
Therefore, a logon audit setting that is applied at the OU level will override a conflicting logon audit setting that is applied at the domain level unless you have taken special steps to apply Group Policy loopback processing.
Audit policies are computer policies.
However, in most cases you can apply audit settings for only specified resources and groups of users by configuring SACLs on the relevant objects. This enables auditing for a security group that contains only the users you specify. This can audit attempts by members of the Payroll Processors OU to delete objects from this folder.
Advanced security audit policy settings were introduced in Windows Server R2 or Windows 7 and can be applied to those operating systems and later. These advanced audit polices can only be applied by using Group Policy.
Using both basic and advanced audit policy settings can cause unexpected results in audit reporting. If you use Advanced Audit Policy Configuration settings or use logon scripts to apply advanced audit policies, be sure to enable the Audit: This will prevent conflicts between similar settings by forcing basic security auditing to be ignored.
The following are examples of how audit policies can be applied to an organization's OU structure: Apply data activity settings to an OU that contains file servers. If your organization has servers that contain particularly sensitive data, consider putting them in a separate OU so that you can configure and apply a more precise audit policy to these servers.
Apply user activity audit policies to an OU that contains all computers in the organization. If your organization places users in OUs based on the department they work in, consider configuring and applying more detailed security permissions on critical resources that are accessed by employees who work in more sensitive areas, such as network administrators or the legal department.
Apply network and system activity audit policies to OUs that contain the organization's most critical servers, such as domain controllers, CAs, email servers, or database servers. Mapping your security auditing goals to a security audit policy configuration After you identify your security auditing goals, you can begin to map them to a security audit policy configuration.Although internal auditors are increasingly aware of the importance and value of audit analytics, prior research indicates that the use of audit analytics is below expectation.
