Part 4 – Monitoring and Auditing

This lesson focuses on monitoring and auditing. Monitoring involves the continuous observation of a software post-installation to make sure it is properly working and meeting all the requirements specified by the contract. Monitoring also ensures software remains secure. There are five elements of good monitoring:
• Consistency
• Quantitative
• Objectivity
• Relevance
• Inexpensive
Audits are very important in that they can be used to verify information after an event and can also be used to ensure policies are being followed and to make sure individual accounts are in compliance with the rules and regulations of an organization.
