Unix Security and auditing

I am starting an audit of unix security within our company and am looking for any information that may assist me with this. I am looking for any tips or pointers that I should be aware of when looking at unix. I am very new to unix so any help will do. Maybe there is someone out the that has had some audit experience on unix. Thanks.
