NCA OT: PCI DSS 4.0 User Guide – Reports and Reporting Packages


Summary Reports and Detailed Reports

PCI DSS 4.0 reporting is broken into summary reports and detailed reports to present various audiences with appropriate forensic log data. Summary reports provide a higher level of information that may be appropriate for some audit and executive management requests. Detailed reports provide additional information, sometimes including raw log data, to facilitate IT and security operations. Additionally, any report can be run as an investigation to delve into forensic information around the activity of interest.

Reports serve as a good source of record for audit requests and can even be used for sample selection from a population of events. If you use reports for audit activities, you may be requested to trace report data back to the original log file to ensure the data is complete and accurate. You can also clone and modify reports to accommodate requests or assign them to reporting packages to meet the needs of a given audience.

Reporting Packages

LogRhythm administrators can easily create or modify reporting packages to provide needed content for auditors, executive management, or other audiences who require output for assessment. Within the PCI DSS 4.0 module there are four reporting package templates that you can modify to align with auditing and organizational requirements.
