Welcome to the world of compliance and digital fingerprints. 

Digital fingerprints are the fundamentals of the data that companies and individuals generate when interfacing with the modern IT and Internet-driven world.

And these fingerprints must be recorded in a concise and timely manner if organisations are able to prove their compliance with data protection legislation and best practise.

These digital fingerprints, commonly known as events or logs, can be used in a variety of circumstances:

  • Combating cybercrime by allowing unified analysis across all types of data for forensic investigations;
  • Demonstrating regulatory compliance through audit-quality data collection and storage;
  • Streamlining IT operations by enabling investigation of operations data required for change, network, and application management.

Despite the obvious and tangible benefits of log management, organizations continue to struggle with the volume and usage of log data for ongoing operations.

To date, no single solution has addressed the differing needs of security, compliance audit and IT operations teams.

This educational and informative white paper - provided by ArcSight - discusses the requirements for a universal log management solution, usage of which was highlighted in a recent case study cyber-espionage incident at Boeing Corp.
