Up next we tackle the “Maintenance, Monitoring and Analysis of Audit Logs”
The major systems you use to run your business (Windows, Microsoft Office, etc) give you the option to enable a critical information security feature: audit logs. These logs keep a detailed record of things like who accessed your systems, when they accessed them, where they accessed them from, and what someone did once they had access.
A basic tenant of cybersecurity is that it’s not if you’ll get breached, it’s when. That means you have to plan for a possible attack.
Nothing gives you a clearer view into what a hacker did once they got into your system than detailed logs. And if reviewed regularly, they can help you detect the presence of a hacker within your network sooner.
Having these audit logs enabled can also help you avoid a major privacy liability issue (something your cyberinsurance carrier will be happy to hear). If you have logs enabled, you have a better chance of saying decisively whether or not a hacker access private information or not.
Logs are not automatically enabled, though; your IT administrator needs to enable them if you hope to benefit from them.
