A common logging requirement is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS), which requires all retailers, financial institutions, and payment processors that store credit cardholder information to provide audit trails that allow reconstruction of all instances of certain events:

  • Attempts to access cardholder data
  • Actions of any type taken by any individual with administrative privileges
  • Unsuccessful access attempts (denials)
  • Creation and deletion of system-level objects
  • Initialization of the audit logs (use of the BEGIN/END LOGGING statement)
  • Attempts to access audit trails
  • Administration of identification and authentication mechanisms
