Log Management Compliance - ISO 27001 - International Organization for Standardization

The ISO 27001 standard is a model for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving management systems information security (ISMS) within the context of the overall commercial risks of the organization.

ISO language in relevance to log management: "Audit logs must be turned on for security events, user activities and exceptions. They must be kept for a predetermined period of time.". The task of organizing this information can be overwhelming. In addition to the millions of individual log entities that can be generated daily, all IT environments have reporting data logs. Additional recommendations to analyze and report on log data make manual processes or internally prepared solutions are insufficient and expensive for many organizations.

Data logs are categorized, identified, and standardized easily to analyze and report them.
