GPG-13 Deployment Guide – Install the Package

The GPG-13 Pre-Implementation section summarizes the collection of infrastructure details needed to configure the GPG-13 Advanced Compliance Suite. It should be noted that LogRhythm offers the GPG-13 Advanced Compliance Suite out-of-the-box to LogRhythm customers.

The LogRhythm GPG-13 Advanced Compliance Suite provides bundled Alarms, Investigations, and Reports to help demonstrate regulatory compliance. The GPG-13 Auditor will check for specific line-item regulations to be met by LogRhythm.


The Pre-Implementation Checklist is used to collect all necessary infrastructure details used to configure the GPG-13 Advanced Compliance Suite. During this phase, the following items should be collected:

  • Log Source Lists
  • User Lists

Install and Enable the Compliance Module

The GPG-13 Advanced Compliance Suite is provided as part of the LogRhythm Knowledge Base (KB). Updating the KB automatically creates the proper Lists, AI Engine Rules, Investigations, Reports, Reporting Packages, and Tails.
