Challenge: Though the goal of real-time monitoring is to raise an alarm at the first inkling of an attack, the chances of missing an attack are still quite high.

Solution: Fortunately, granular access audits can help find the attack and reveal why it wasn't properly detected in the first place.

The CSA outlines the major components of auditing as:

1. Completeness of the required audit

2. Timely access to audit information

3. Integrity of the information

4. Authorized access to the audit information

To ensure a successful audit, include the proper techniques and technologies in your big data infrastructure, including application logging, security information and event management (SIEM), forensics tools, and enabling syslog on routers.
