Logs. At best: They’re a vital part of your information security strategy to “find the bad." At worst: They’re a nightmare to manage — especially when they take up so much storage space! Of course, we all have numerous regulations to thank for the privilege of storing our logs for what seems like eternity. Perhaps you’re bound to regulations or frameworks such as PCI (one year minimum), HIPAA (open to interpretation, but many suggest 6 YEARS to be safe), NIST, COBIT, and so many others.
Whatever your reasons are, logs have become increasingly problematic as more and more data sources require a higher volume of storage.
The New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) has recently enacted new cybersecurity regulation aimed at protecting financial services organizations and their data. The new regulation known as 23 NYCRR 500 actually went into effect earlier in the year, but the 180-day transition period ended on August 28th, meaning organizations now need to be officially in compliance. Of course financial services CISOs are no strangers to regulation, having to already comply with a dizzying array of control frameworks including NIST, COBIT, SSAE and specific regulations such as PCI-DSS and SEC OCIE just to name a few.
