1. Security Monitoring provides a means by which to confirm that information resource security controls are in place, are effective and are not being bypassed. One of the benefits of security monitoring is the early identification of wrongdoing or new security vulnerabilities. Early detection and monitoring can prevent possible attacks or minimize their impact on computer systems. Other benefits include audit compliance, service level monitoring, performance measuring, limiting liability and capacity planning.
2. The UTSA Standard for Security Monitoring applies to all individuals who are responsible for the installation of new information resources, the operations of existing information resources and individuals charged with information resource security.
