PCI Asset Logging
This report provides a list of all PCI assets that have stopped logging their data to Splunk platform or that have never logged data to Splunk platform. Use this report to ensure that all PCI assets are logging their data to Splunk platform. Use this report to repair any systems that are non-compliant in their logging configurations.
PCI DSS requires that audit logs from systems, applications, and devices in the cardholder data environment be promptly backed up to a central log server. Splunk platform functions as this central log server and monitors the data flow from all PCI assets.
Relevant data sources
Relevant data sources for this report include Splunk platform and audit logs.
