Ipswitch, Inc.’s Network Management Division, developer of the WhatsUp Gold suite of IT management solutions, will host a free best practices webinar on Wednesday, July 28, 10 a.m. EDT to discuss the increasing importance of security log management and compliance.
Officials with Ipswitch (News - Alert) said that the “Best Practices: Security Log Management and Compliance” webinar will discuss common log management challenges and will offer advice on the best way to collect, store, analyze and monitor log data to meet and report on regulatory compliance standards like Sarbanes Oxley and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI (News - Alert) DSS).
Company official said that the webinar will present best practices for protecting vital infrastructure assets, reduce cyber threats and comply with corporate and regulatory policies.
A recent Ipswitch webinar, “Automating Event Log Management,” found that more than half the attendees were uncertain of what to do with their log files, which have become increasingly vital for businesses because they contain critical information that could reduce exposure to intruders, malware, damage, loss and legal liabilities.
According to company officials, participants in the “Best Practices: Security Log Management and Compliance,” webinar will learn how to: automatically collect, store and archive event logs using Ipswitch’s Certificate of Networthiness-approved Event Archiver; monitor and maintain audit trails on file access and unauthorized activity using Event Analyst; configure real-time notification of specific events with Event Alarm; use Event Rover for ad hoc troubleshooting and deep forensics; use Event Analyst to generate the right reports for auditors and security officers verifying key compliance regulations.
All participants in the webinar will be entered in a drawing with a chance to win the Amazon Kindle, company officails said.
