LogRhythm Geolocation is a key function in enterprise log management and SIEM that allows the organization to establish global awareness. This is facilitated through network visualization and relationship mapping that allow geolocation settings to be established according to your needs. Specifically, for GDPR consider working with LogRhythm ProServ to set the GeoIP Resolution to the country level allows you to obtain global event awareness without bogging down your SIEM.
For example, monitor inbound traffic from countries in the EU to ensure GDPR regulations are adhered to and policies can be followed. AIE rules and alarms have been created within the GDPR Compliance Automation Suite to notify appropriate individuals for the potential of new data subjects entering in personal data into your environment. Empower your organization to apply policies and ensure adherence to GDPR’s right to consent and identify at-risk systems where mitigating controls need to be applied.
In order to use GeoIP functionality, a LogRhythm administrator must enable the feature in the Data Processor’s advanced settings. As to the geographic granularity of applying the GeoIP functionality to the deployment, this consideration should be considered based on resources and requirements. From least granular to most the following settings can be established: Country, Region, City.
