Log Management & Compliance Best Practice for the Government Sector
In order to ensure compliance as well as protection of confidential government records and assets, you need to know who is accessing which systems and data and what they are doing at all times. Records of events taking place in your environment are being logged right now into event logs and Syslog files across your servers, workstations and networking devices. This log data needs to be collected, stored, analyzed and monitored to meet and report on regulatory compliance standards such as FISMA or NISPOM. Without the right log management strategy in place, your organization’s exposure to security breaches, malware, loss, damage and legal liabilities is significantly increased.
