Log Management and PCI DSS 4.0 compliance

What is PCI DSS? PCI DSS, or Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, is a collection of security requirements developed by major credit card companies to safeguard merchants who accept credit card payments by ensuring they provide a secure environment. The standard includes provisions for data protection, network security, and security management, among other things. Organizations that process credit card transactions are required to comply with these standards. Who needs to be PCI DSS compliant?

GDPR compliance and log data

The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018. Many of us remember the influx of marketing emails around this time, with companies updating their privacy policies and asking for the consent of around 450 million Europeans to continue using their personal data. An often misunderstood participant of this compliance quest is log data—​a source potentially rich in protected personal data. So, how does the GDPR apply to an organization’s log data?


How NXLog can help meet compliance mandates

Compliance mandates are frameworks that organizations must implement to meet industry regulations. Some of these mandates provide guidelines and best practices, while others may be tied to legislation. With the constant and rapid changes in technology, ensuring that your organization adheres to the relevant regulations is an ongoing process. So why should you comply? Simply put, not complying might cost you more than implementing processes to meet regulatory requirements. By not complying, you might be violating the law, and in case of a data breach, you may face litigation from affected parties.
