SEC434: Log Management In-Depth: Compliance, Security, Forensics, and Troubleshooting

A session at SANS Security West 2013

Message from the Author:

Logs and log analysis have long been one of the most challenging areas of security; they are also closely tied to proper system and network administration practices. With regulatory compliance added on top with specific requirements on log collection, retention, and analysis (such as those found in PCI DSS), there has never been a better time to FINALLY get your logs under control. This class is the first-ever dedicated class on getting your log management project right. If you know that "you need to have those logs handled!", sign up and learn exactly how to do that. Many years of experience with logs went into this class and so you, an attendee, have a chance to avoid the most damaging mistakes and learn from many years of the author's experience with logging, log management, log tools, and the use of logs for various purposes.
