Security: Auditing

Compile details of system usage

Security support and updates

After your organization has implemented security measures and believes they're operating properly, it's important to verify that they are, in fact, working properly. Auditing—capturing details of the system's operation—is necessary to make sure that systems are doing what they should. It's also required to demonstrate regulatory compliance with, for example, HIPAA or credit card processing regulations (PCI DSS).

Security best practices recognize that systems are always changing and new threats are always emerging. You need to keep a watchful eye on system behavior to catch breaches and unexpected behavior as quickly as possible to minimize possible damage to your data, to your business' reputation, and to your customers.
