Log Management FAQs
Log Management is an umbrella term that encompasses all of the activities and procedures involved in the generation, collection, centralisation, parsing, transmission, storage, archiving, and disposal of large amounts of computer-generated log data.
Log management technologies are used to handle any logs generated by apps, systems, networks, software, or users and deal with them in whatever way that best matches an enterprise or organization’s needs.
Inadequate logging and monitoring vulnerability occurs when a security-critical event is not adequately logged off and the system is not monitored. The absence of such functionalities can make malicious activity more difficult to detect, affecting the incident control process.
Log Management should be conducted by an external service provider to ensure there is zero bias in the testing and remediation process. Gridware is technologically agnostic, meaning we will not force your organisation to implement technological measures that we believe are unnecessary.
It also ensures that the investigation is run independently from the business by technical experts who are familiar with the latest developments in exploits and both international and industry standards.
