Regulated Organization 12 Steps to Logging Rehab

  1. We admitted that we were powerless over compliance regulations; that our logs had become unmanageable.

  2. We came to believe that Rational Cyber's Log Management as a Service could restore us to compliance and sanity.

  3. We made a decision to turn our log management over to the care of Rational Cyber and their team of experts.

  4. We received a searching and fearless inventory of log management environment.

  5. We admitted to ourselves and to our auditors the exact nature of our wrongs.

  6. We were entirely ready to have Rational Cyber remove all these defects of log-management compliance.

  7. We eagerly asked Rational Cyber to remove our shortcomings.

  8. We made a list of all FISMA system ISSOs that we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.

  9. We made direct amends to such ISSOs wherever possible.

  10. We continued to receive an organizational inventory of our log management and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.

  11. We sought through Rational Cyber support to improve our log management as we understood it, seeking better compliance and security and the power to carry that out.

  12. Having achieved fiscal savings, cost avoidance, and compliance as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other regulated organizations, and to practice these principles across the entire security stack.
