Logging policy and centralised logging

Project ID: 
71
Current stage: 
Manager: 
Unit: 
What: 

Description: The evaluation phase of this project will look at logging policy, and
the options available for the provision of one or more loghosts.
If this turns out to be viable, the implementation phase will be done as a separate project

Deliverables:


  • A report on logging policy, and as part of this whether centralised logging is sensible. If it is, fork a new project for the implementation.
  • A policy
    document

Why: 

Customer: All

Case statement: We should have an ongoing review process to determine whether our existing logs
are sufficient for our requirements and adequate to meet regulatory and
legislative needs. This project will kick the process off.
