Activity Logging and Monitoring 265

  • Hi,
    I am new here.
    What I want to know is that what is Activity Logging and Monitoring with respect to Sarbanes Oxley (404).
    I read it in some places but got confused and want to clear my understanding.
    Any help is appreciated.

  • This is a very broad question…
    one thing to keep in mind is that SOX is not out to solve world hunger. It is very important to scope and size the work.
    So to answer your question, you need to ask yourself which business cycle are you refering to?
    Will the audit logging satisfy any specific control objective?
    Are you relying the logging for any key controls?
    One final note the act of audit logging IS NOT a control in itself, the control is that someone HAVE to review and KNOW what needs to be done if he/she identify something.
    Good luck.
