The purpose of this auditing and logging standard is to ensure that all company systems are auditable and that proper procedures are in place to identify and resolve all high-risk security, integrity and/or availability issues.

Sample procedures include logging all actions taken by any individual with root or administrative privileges; recording all access to log files or systems; reporting all valid or invalid logical access attempts; logging the creation and deletion of system-level objects; retaining audit logs in accordance with the data retention policy; identifying the user identification, type of event, date and time, and origination of events; and disabling or turning off log services.
