Security Event Logging and Monitoring Services

More information



Security Event Logging and Monitoring

Security event logging and monitoring is a process that organizations perform by examining electronic audit logs for indications that unauthorized security-related activities have been attempted or performed on a system or application that processes, transmits or stores confidential information. When properly designed and implemented, system event logging and monitoring assists organizations to determine what has been recorded on their systems for follow-up investigation and if necessary remediation.

What can security monitoring do for you?

Security event logging and monitoring services help clients to weed through system and audit logs quickly and cost effectively, leaving only relevant records that the organization must analyze and retain.

Effective logging and monitoring serves to help company's protect confidential information and through careful trend analysis, identify meaningful improvements to their security management programs.
